You're a Rockstar ATC

Hey there. I haven't posted anything lately. I was on a roll for a while and then last week I had some health and sleep issues and my mojo melted. I have multiple projects almost finished, so I have just been trying to plug away at them. Here's an Artist Trading Card that I made for a friend.

My process: I stamped and heat-embossed the Lost Coast Designs Calligraphy Venus and then the Heidi Swapp Clear Wings stamp. I masked both and then used a 6x6 Crafters Workshop Flowered Quarter stencil with Hero Arts Neon inks to create my background. Next, I removed the masks and colored Venus and her wings with ProMarkers and Winks of Stella glitter pens. Finally I stamped the Verve Rockstar stamp and the Leave Memories reply stamp sentiments, and then inked all around the edge of the card for the hint of a frame.

Well, back to plugging away. Thanks for visiting and I hope you are all safe and well! XOXO

This ATC rocks my world. So very creative. The background is nice and so is the main image. I chuckled at your sentiment "no reply expected." You truly mastered ATC's Aimes.

Love, love, love! Your friend is going to be thrilled to receive this! I think I had this LCD stamp a few years back when I was on her design team - it's a beauty! Hope you are feeling better!
