Persist Artist Trading Card - Tando Creative

Persist Artist Trading Card by Dana Tatar for Tando CreativePersist Artist Trading Card by Dana Tatar for Tando Creative Featuring a Crackle Stamp and Cracked UTEE Top Layer

Hi! I'm sharing the artist trading card I created for the Cracks and Crevices theme this week on the Tando Creative Design Blog. I started this card by adding pale blue and brown Distress Ink to an artist trading card blank. I then pressed a crackle stamp covered with black archival ink onto the card to add a base pattern. Next, I applied watermark ink over the entire card and added two layers of ultra thick embossing powder. Once the embossing powder cooled I bent the card in several areas to produce the cracked glass effect. I used my Dymo tape label maker to create a sentiment for this piece. Lastly, I glued this card onto an Artist Trading Card for added support to prevent further cracking.

You can find the chipboard I used for this project in the Tando Creative Retail Store. We'd love to see your creativity! Share your work with us in Tando's Creative Zone on Facebook.
