Mixed Media ATC Trio

Hello lovely crafty friends!

I hope you are all doing well. I have a dose of WOW! embossing inspiration to share with you today with these micro mini wonders or ATC's (artist trading cards). I have used a selection of  WOW embossing powders to create a variety of textures and effects.
And here is my set of three ATC's together. I wanted to create a set which matched in terms of colour scheme and accents but were all individual.
The base for this one stared out as an old postcard which I cut down prepared with gesso. I stamped the circular stamp from the Spark 'n' Shine set all over the card then adhered pen nibs and pieces of crumpled Copper Fab Foil onto one of the stamped circles to fashion the main feature of the card. Textures have been created with the use of micro beads, Copper Ultra High and Blueberry Cheesecake embossing powder which I melted over the beads.  
For the second ATC I used the same postcard, again cut down to form the base card and added gesso to prime the surface once again. using some mica spray to which I added Green Pearl and Peppermint Tea embossing powders which gave a beautiful subtle shine to the background then just layered embellishments and highlighted with Ultra Rich Gold powder.

The resin heart embellishment has been made using the WOW! Hearts mould and Melt It powder mixed with Silver Stratosphere embossing powder. I've finished the card off with a border stamp from the Pick 'n' Mix set.
For the final card I used a piece of scrap packaging as a base which I layered with denim scraps, tiny wooden shapes, old brads and gems. I covered with gesso to allow my paint spray to adhere properly then added Copper Ultra High, Chocolate Caramel Pearl and Primary Blue Tang powders into the wet spray once again and melted. For the main embellishment I have used a leave stamp from the Flights of Fancy stamp set which I stamped onto card and coloured with a paint spray. To create a beautiful iridescent two tone effect I melted Pearl Green powder on top of the wet spray.

Have a wonderful day
