Artist trading cards - Jump in puddles

 Hi everyone,

I've got another pair of ATCs to share with you. They might be inspired by the many rainy days we had over the last weeks.

The background was made with alcohol inks on matte cardstock. Therefore I applied them onto my gelli plate, along with a little blending solution and directly add the paper on top - without letting the ink dry and without adding any acrylic paint. The light colors made me think of a sky and that brought me to the ATCs as they are. After inking the edges it even looked a little stormy.

The process of making the cards wasn't complicated, but I want to emphasize my way of creating a little dynamic. One aspect is the asymmetry I used to put my two card layers together. In addition to this, I aligned the woman with the umbrella in the opposite bottom left corner. Images that are "cut" at the edge of a project can make a real difference and add more interest to the composition.

Stamps used:
Girl With Umbrella facing away (19127)
Keep Calm/Puddles (19120)
Windmill Scene (19124)

Other material:
- white and navy cardstock
- alcohol inks (cloudy blue, rust) + blending solution
- gelli plate
- Versafine Claire ink (nocturne)
- Memento ink (london fog)
- Distress ink (black soot)
- Arteza watercolor pens

See you soon!
