Birthday Artist Trading Cards

How quickly the months roll by and I can’t believe that it is already April and this means, it is Bee Happy Crafts Anniversary Celebration so I’m trying my luck again. This April will be one month of celebration with a theme of Spreading Happiness. 

Here are the challenges for the anniversary weeklies. 

Artist Trading Card 
Bee Happy & Me Story 
Wall Mural Design 
Diorama of Your Dream Craft Room 

It was only last December when I first read about Artist Trading Cards so I researched how to make one. According to the pin that I found on Pinterest, for a great ATC, you can choose from the following: 

1. An interesting background texture or environment. 
2. Subject matter such as a person, animal, creature, insect, etc. 
3. School-appropriate word or phrase. 
4. Embellishment - buttons, string, ribbon, shapes, bling, papers, etc. 
5. Draw or color onto the image to emphasize certain elements. 

For my craft project, I decided to create a Birthday ATC. I don’t have drawing skills so I used stamps for my subject matter and even the phrase. I used Ohuhu Markers, Distress Oxides, and Lunar Paste to color the image and other elements. For the paper, I used textured and watercolor cardstock. 

It took me a long time to finish these 4 ATC but I am happy with the result. I made a short video here.
