Ladies' Faces ATCs - inspired by Vera Lane Studio images

Hi everyone! For my second DT post today, I decided to play with two more of the four Ladies' Faces digi stamps from Vera Lane Studio. I absolutely love this set, having already created an art journal page with one of them when it was first released. Three down...one to go.LOL This time I decided to create two artist trading cards.

The ladies were coloured with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils, fussy cutting them leaving a narrow white border, and a second time leaving a narrow black border. Foam tape was used to pop them up once they were adhered to the backgrounds.

The cards themselves were cut from thin chipboard covered with scraps left from a  background making session done at an earlier time. As near as I can tell, they are mainly Lindy's Starburst sprays mopped up with white cardstock. Stamping and stencilling with Jet Black Archival, as well as Texture Paste, and gesso rings were added to the cards. To ground the two ladies, a strip of checked washi tape adhered to white cardstock was added to the bottom of each card. The words are Chit Chat Stickers matted with black and popped up with foam tape. Black Big Brush pen was used to darken the outside edges, both to frame the cards and to disguise the layers of different papers.

Thanks for joining the Ladies and me today. When you get a chance, pop by the Vera Lane Studio Etsy shop to meet all of their friends. We'd love to have you join us on the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group as well. There is always something new to inspire you and the company is wonderful :)

Life is good; so is art.
