Asian Geisha Drywall Tape ATC

By Chris Stern / CS Designs

I love making Art Trading Cards, there is just something so addictive about them. You probably noticed this ATC on the previous page along with the Inchies etc. Because of their small size ATC are also a great way to utilize your Inchies, and Trinchies. They make excellent focal points and can have all the impact of much larger pieces.

For this ATC I used my Digital Stamp Design Geisha Montage 1. She is colored with Prismacolor pencils. The background is text weight background paper that I glued onto card stock to give it more reinforcement. I often do this with my text weight papers as it allow me to use really pretty papers that often don't come in cardstock thickness. The gold and red pieces are pieces of recycled greeting cards and the netting is drywall tape. I bought a huge roll a while back and love using it because it give such a nice texture effect. I printed the Tranquility sentiment and made the brass coils from 20 gauge brass wire.
