Anyone can feel like a artist after putting together a Artist Trading Card. Here is my Thursday Trading Card for all the world to see. It is such great fun, as I have said before, in a short amount of time to have a great little finished piece. You can mix and match themes and colors and come up with so many great ideas. I love to layer. I like to layer colors, embellishments, papers and inks. Using items that are printed as well as stamped makes for a great combo. Or try using just a single item in a paper. For instance the flowers behind his head. They are cut out of a 12 by 12 and inked on the edges to pop! I added some crackle medium for the lines in the leaf and there is all sorts of fun techniques going on here. Put together all of those things you already know how to do and then add something new you haven't tried and you will love the results!

Well back to creating and to all of the fun of mommy hood.
