Postcard/ATC and Artist Trading Coins

Morning and I have two DT posts today-the second one is for the new ATG/Just for Fun challenge at A Inky Mess and I made a postcard/3 Trading Coins and an ATC set also used for swaps in a FB forum.
First of all the ATC set--
The image is part of an A4 Docrafts collage stamp(had for at least 5yrs and used once!)edged with a Crafters Companion texture stamp and the keys were coloured with another neglected stash--Twinkling H2O's

Next Artist Trading Coins
The ladies head stamped image was a craft mag freebie and I believe from IndigoBlu-added a little promarker colouring and doodles with ruler and fineliner pen the backgrounds were smooched with distress inks.
The Crow which was a free gift from Crafty Individuals when I bought some stamps(yes some of my stamps were actually bought lol)was stamped and cut out/coloured with a promarker and doodling added with fineliner pen.

NOW-- my postcard first of all the card was smooched through oxide inks stamped with same Docrafts A4 collage stamp in versamark then wiped over with 4 colours of mica powders(more neglected stash)then over stamped with Chocolate Baroque Bee/Crafters Companion texture stamps and a couple of craft mag freeebie stamps--distress inked round edges of all made--just a pity I couldn't get a pic to show the mica shine.
