Brutus Monroe ATC Blog Hop

Welcome friends! I am sharing a really fun project today for the Brutus Monroe blog hop. This blog hop is all about ATCs or Artist Trading Cards. These are small (2.5in x 3.5in) cards that you “art” on and then trade with fellow crafters.


For my ATCs I started with a few pieces of watercolor paper. I then added drops of Aqua Pigment paint to my glass mat and dragged the paper through the paint. I really like the ethereal look that this created.


I cut down the watercolor panels so that I had nine ATCs all together. I then used a fuse tool in order to turn them all into shakers. The plastic that I used for the shakers is actually just scrapbook page holders. I used a variety of different sequins to fill the shakers.


In order to get the sentiments stamped in black onto the shaker plastic I used Staz-on ink. I stamped a lot of the sentiments by using two different colors of ink to create an ombre look. I then went over those sentiments with Icicle embossing ink. I got most of the sentiments that I used from the Super Sentimental stamp set from Brutus Monroe.


I added silver twine in fun ways to each of the ATCs. For a couple of the cards I added additional sentiment strips. I went over those strips with Wink of Stella glitter to give them some sparkle.
