Funtastic Friday #175 and Pirate Princess Artist Trading Cards

Pirate Princess Artist Trading Card

This is an ATC aka an Artist Trading Card that I made by using a card from a deck of Pirate Cards

I wanted to participate in an artist trading card swap down at my studio and I also wanted to make enough  ATC's to swap with a few friends and some new friends.

Here's how they were created. 
I started with these paper food liners that I got at a restaurant I was at with my girlfriend, Kat . She fell in love with the paper and so we asked for a few for our artwork. Kat is the one who introduced me to ATC's and she is the one who teaches it at our studio.
I used Mod Podge to adhere 10 cards to the paper.

Before the paper dries I peeled back the area that would show a bit of the pirate skeleton face .

After the paper dries , I cut the cards  apart. 
( You can speed up the dry time with a blow dryer.) 

 The front of all the cards got a spritz of gold to make them sparkle.
After that I distressed around the edges with  a make up sponge and 
Just tap around the edges to create a vignette.
 Next I printed an image of a ship's wheel and the words "Pirate Princess" . I cut them and used a glue stick to adhere them to the card.
Using a black sharpie, I add a few whirly gigs around the card and highlighted with the marker around the words Pirate Princess. I added some bling to the center of the ship's wheel and declared my project complete.

I love the way these came out and I  love that I completed a set of ten. 

Let me know if you'd like to trade ATC's . 

And now on to the party.
