Fairy Girls ATC’s

Artist trading cards are one of my favorite art pieces to work on.  You can fit so much onto a little 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ space.  Recently, I found a free printable of fairy girls that have a wonderful vintage look to them.  So, I created some ATC’s around them and also gave it a Valentine love theme.

I started off with some Inchie Arts ATC cards, 7Gypsies papers and the fairy girls printable that is available in my Pinterest account.

I adhered the paper with some gel medium and then I wanted to create some more texture.  I combined Luminarte’s Silks with modeling paste and used Balzer Designs Mini Punchinella stencil.  The silks glaze mixed perfectly and still maintained their sheen.

Here I combined DecoArt’s Media Line Crackle Paste with their Raw Umber fluid acrylic.  I love this Balzer Designs Mini Pattern Strips stencil, so many patterns to use as borders.

I wanted each card to have a love theme to them.  So I found 3 different ways to create the word Love.  The first one was with this wood chip from Um Wow Studios.  I applied just enough glaze to give it some shine.

I love these little letter stickers from Tim Holtz!

For the last one I used these Studio G stamps that I found for $1 at Michael’s a while back.  What a deal!  Staz On midi ink pads are fast becoming my favorite “go to” inks for stamping, especially in the Ganache color.

As a final touch to each one, I used my charcoal pencil to give the girls some dimension and depth.  So here are the completed 3 Fairy Girls ATC’s.  Each one unique, but each one representing love.
