Artist Trading Coins

Just a break from Christmas cards-I have some Artist Trading Coins to share which I made for a swap on a FB forum-the background on the first set is stencil clean off and the stamps are from Crafty Individuals.They were all cut from 2 layers of cardstock with creative dies.

The background on the second set was oxides,the texture paste through a TH stencil and a leaf with a die-cut from The Works and the stamped sentiment from an Artisan Design set.

Always love your artist trading coins ideas! The colorful dimension wiht the stenciling on the second set really caught my eye, but the top collage in the black and white are just gorgeous!

Two great sets of ATCs, both are amazing but I think my favourite has to be the more colourful second set. That set makes me think of an under water cartoon and lets face it there is really only one film which stands out (Ok, so there are the two Finding Nemo films). But for me here is really only the one, do you have it yet? It's Bedknobs and Broomsticks of course ... altogether now - 'How pleasant, bobbing along. Bobbing along on the bottom of the beautiful briny sea.'

Have a lovely weekend.
