Grungy Butterfly ATC´s with stencils, stamps and Distress Inks – Rubber Dance

Hello, I am again up over at the Rubber Dance blog with an Artist Trading Card tutorial share. I created these ATC´s with various sets of Rubber Dance stamps and stencils.

For these Artist Trading Cards I used a music note paper (if you don´t have one, you can stamp your own using the Rubber Dance “Music” stamp) on the background. On that I applied Distress Paint thru the Organic #3 stencil and then added a slightly darker tone of watercolor on top. After that I took a brown and mahogany tone of Distress Oxide ink and applied those onto the background for additional detail thru the “Marks 2” stencil. I sewed the paper onto a sturdy background with my sewing machine and then stamped some images with black ink and the “Sketchy Leaves” on the papers.

After that I added some golden watercolor pigment details to the stamped leaves and some red watercolor splatters onto the background for additional detail. On top of that I used some of my previously made “Grungy Butterflies” fodder pieces and a piece of misted canvas and sentiment stickers to finish the ATC´s.

Here is the start-to-finish video on how I created the ATC´s:

and just in case, here is how I made the butterfly fodder:

I hope I could inspire you with my tutorials a little today.
Happy crafting,
