Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Victorian Vignettes

My local ATC (Artist Trading Card) Club theme for April is “Spring in Paris”. I was able to play around with some very cool digital collage sheets and came up with the design below. The collage sheet was copied onto a transparency then cut down to fit onto the punched edge ATC background. The base paper was distressed with Vintage Photo ink to give it a nice weathered look. Some of the design detail was traced on the back of the transparency with Crystal Lacquer then sprinkled with glitter. When viewed from the front, it gives a nice but subtle shimmer. Add a faux postage stamp and fiber and voila! C’est finis!
