Cardboard ATC's by Marta + VIDEO tutorial

Hello friends,
I am back to you with I hope an interesting project, actually 9 little projects.
I created a set of 9 ATC's for Dusty Attic!
Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. Artists create, trade and collect art at organized "swap" events, either in person or online. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5"
Did you ever make some ATC's ? If not I do hope that this video will encourage you to do so :)



As you can see I used Corrugated Card from Dusty as my base. This is a great way to use some recycled cardboard that you may find at home.


Every card has a lovely chipboard that suit the size and matches to the whole group.
Sometimes I cut my chipboards into smaller pieces. You are free to use any chipboard you have in your stash! Use what you already have!
To colour my cards I used sprays.





Lastly as my final touches I add gems, pearls...flowers. 
You can get those in my ETSY Store :) here
I hope you will find those inspirational and I do hope you will make your own.
I wish you will enjoy the video and create with me!


Sending you many creative hugs, Marta xx

Magical cards for Lindy's Stamp Gang

Hello dear friends, 

Today is my last blog post for Lindy's...
I am finishing my two years of being part of Lindy's Design Team, but... it does not mean I am saying goodbye :) 
I am very proud to say that I will be a Brand Ambassador for Lindy's. I will be still around, sharing my projects, using my most favourite products of Lindy's Stamp Gang and giving workshops. You can meet me on my social media Facebook, YouTube, Blog and Instagram. I will be posting inspirations and sharing my love for Lindy's. You know there is no me without Lindy's sprays :)
I am happy that I can still inspire you with my art!

Today's project is for everyone... It is fun and very easy to do. All you need is few magicals. I used the September colour set. 

go greased lightnin 

Feel free to use any colour you have in your stash. I used watercolour paper to create my background. Start with sprinkling some powder onto your page and sprays some water over.  


Next step is to dry your paper. Once this is done, cut the page into 6x6 card size. Attach your background to the cards and start adding embellishments. I added chipboards from my favourite Scrapiniec, flowers and some cabochon shiny gems from my Etsy store (visit here). 
Easy isn't ?  


 I hope you found these ideas inspirational and helpful.  




  Hugs, Marta xx marta-brand-ambassador-blog-post-footer-2016-v-3
