Dragonfly ATC

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here,

 I have created an Artist Trading Card (ATC) using Rubber Dance Beautiful Bugs stamp set,

Let's see how I made it!!

I started with a pattern paper. Onto that I created texture with stencil and modelling paste.
Next I applied clear gesso to the whole surface.

I applied acrylic paints in pink, yellow and orange, randomly on the surface

For the next layer on base, I stamped text using Rubber Dance "Art defined " stamp and black archival ink.
I also stamped texture with mini stamps from Textured houses stamp set and yellow ink.

As a focal point I chose Dragonfly from Beautiful Bugs stamp set. I stamped it with black archival ink and colored with Distress Oxide ink.

To create more depth on the surface, I applied walnut stain Distress crayon at the edges.

At the end, I adhered the Dragonfly.

Hope you would like to try this ATC using Rubber Dance Stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
