It will soon be time to dance outside without any shoes on!  Bring on summer!!  Today I'd like to share a little Artist Trading Card summoning the warm summer months!
ES-187-L  Dolunay Dances by Third Coast Rubber Stamps
Goddess by Stampotique Originals
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Kaleidacolor™ Dye Inkpad Tomato Vine
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink Rich Cocoa
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Ink Potion No. 9™ Blending Solution
The ATC is made out of mixed media paper which really holds wet inks, sprays and paints nicely without warping so badly!  First I brayered the ATC with the beautiful Tomato Vine multi-colored ink and then sprayed it directly with Potion No. 9 to create a soft blended look.  I was surprised how much it enhanced the colors!  Next, I dragged the ink pad around the edges to create a subtle border.  Finally, I stamped the images and sentiments with Rich Cocoa and added touches of color with my Copics and some bling.  I really like how this little project turned out!
