My first EVER artist trading card...


...well, what do you think? I thought it would be impossible to make one of these given the space, 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches. So I put my thinking cap on extra tight, got out my DRS stamps and went to work. I chose image number K662 and just used the large flower. Here is what I came up with. i colored the image with copic markers, added some velvet ribbon and my first ever ATC was born! I used my nesties for the scalloped oval, my Marvy punches for the other ovals and then i pierced the daylights out of this! I used a teeny little nestie for the small "hello" oval and added a rhinestone in the middle of the flower. This was fun to make and I really had to challenge myself by making something so small. If you want to play along, Check out DRS Designs blog for their challenges and see what you can do. Be sure to post a link so we can all see your creations! thanks and have a great night!

I bet this was fun! I love to make inches, so I'm wondering how much harder an ATC's could be. Thank you for leaving such lovely comments on my blog.

Very pretty. I love the ribbon and the bling in the middle of the flower.

Thanks for sharing. I came for a visit from the blog thread at SCS.

That's very pretty! I'm impressed at how much detail you got on there - considering how small it is! I love all the colours!

Very nice! Aren't they fun :) I made my first one for a swap about a month ago and really enjoyed it. My favorite part of yours is the velvet ribbon and vellum layer. So very pretty!
