I'm sharing an artist trading card that I created for Your Memories Here today.  I started with a Ranger Manila Card and piece of Sticky-Back Canvas.  The Sticky-Back Canvas is unprimed, so once I stuck the canvas to my manila card, I added several light coats of watered-down gesso to the canvas surface.  I used Kaisercraft acrylic paint in Yellow to color the background of my card.  I created a subtle ombre effect with the paint, adding a thicker layer of paint to the right-hand side of the card.

I wanted to add more color to my ATC so I brought out my set of Faber-Castell Gelatos.  I used a Prima floral stamp from the Meadow Lark collection.  I rubbed several colors of Gelatos (Red Cherry, Tangerine, Metallic Melon and Chocolate) directly onto my stamp, spritzed my stamp with water, and then stamped onto my ATC several times.



Several stamped images can be produced with one application of the Gelatos to the stamp.  I used the address stamp, also from the Prima Meadow Lark collection, and some Ranger Archival Ink to add another layer of color to my background.

I used a Ranger Paint Dabber in Espresso to add color to a piece of chipboard.  To finish my card I added some Prima embellishments and a quote.
