Mermaid ATC

Mermaid ATC
I recently joined an Artists Trading Card group and this is the first one I made for the swap for August 2013. These are 2.5 x 3.5 inch artist trading cards that you make several of and trade with other artists so then you have a collection. I made 25 which was way too many for this group but I'll have some left to trade another time or with other groups. I also found out that I didn't have to make them all the same but it's ok to. The theme was "beach." Without getting to technical, I used some recycled materials such as Pendaflex file folders that were being trashed at the office, aluminum soda cans both die cut to card and tag shapes. Rubber stamps, ink, embossing powder, markers and gel pens were used for images. The recycled metal die cut tag frames inset with mermaid collage elements were finished off with Glossy Accents by Ranger. Pearl Paint beads completed the string o'pearls.
