Sunny Compass ATC – artist trading card

Gabrielle Javier-Cerulli
Artist Trading Cards (ATC) are a great way to exercise your creative juices on a small scale and to collect ah-mazing art too!  They’re the size of baseball cards so perfect for trading through the mail.  Isn’t it cute on the mini easel?
Today I take you through the steps of how I created this ATC with one of Jill Berry’s new stencils.

There are 15 stencils in Jill Berry’s new Map Art set.  On the Sunny Compass Rose stencil are four small circular shapes that fit perfectly inside the center of the compass.  Thus, allowing many combinations to ensue.

Step 1
Using my favorite stencil in the whole series, the tiny little face, scrape acrylic paint onto the ATC paper.  Carefully lift stencil off.

Step 2
Let face dry then cover with tape to protect it.  Next dot it up using the Circle Explosion stencil.

Step 3
Mix molding paste with acrylic paint or ink spray.  Then remove the tape that was covering the tiny face.  Place the center of the compass over the face.  Use a palette knife or credit card to scrape the molding paste mix onto the paper.  Let it dry.  Last step, add washi tape!
