This is a new Artist Trading Card I made. The background was made using an embossing resist process learned in a class with Claudine Hellmuth. It started out as a variegated tan paper. I stamped with clear ink and clear embossing powder and then heated it to set the powder. Then I washed a light coat of gesso over it. The shiny embossing resists the paint and the paper underneath shows through. It’s really cool!
I added a stamped image of a woman. I’ve been toying with this stamp for a while and wondering what to do with her. Her dress was colored in with colored pencils. I also added some paper lace and vintage buttons. I got the fleur de lis paper punch at the Dollar Store!
I’m playing with the idea of making ACEOs to sell in my shop but I have no idea what to price them. Need to do a little research there.
