ATC Coins by Dot


Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hi everyone, it's Dot here with a quick and easy project for you using some fun stamps and alcohol ink to make some Artist Trading Coins.






The stamps used on these coins are Three Monkeys, ATC Text Set 1, ATC Grunge Set,
 ATC Doodle Circles and Daisy Flourish.

Step 1: This is a play with alcohol inks and blending solution on some Yupo paper. You can play is much as you like with these.  I added in some tiny dots here and there by adding blending solution with the tip of a brush and blowing on it.  This stops it from spreading into bigger circles and is heaps of fun.

Step 2: I added some Alcohol Lift to the ATC Doodle Circles, stamped it onto the background. Let it sit and then buff.  The effect looks brilliant in real life.

Step 3:  Stamping! Where would we be without our stamps!  The script is from ATC Text Set 1 and is stamped in a light coloured Archival ink.  In black archival I've stamped some random patches with the ATC Grunge Set and Daisy Flourish stamps.  The Three Monkeys was stamped onto some photo copy paper and cut out.

Step 4:  Using white acrylic paint and some lids add some more circles to the background. I've also gone in and added some lines with the acrylic paint using an old credit card.

Step 5:  To finish, attach the monkeys and then attach some words. I chose some chit chat stickers that kind of went with each of the monkeys.  I've also edged around the coins with black archival ink.

Now I have some coins that I can either use in my Art Journal,
on cards or swap with others. They are so handy to have.

The main stamp used was Three Monkeys

It's a great set to use with the monkeys all together, or as cheeky little monkeys all on their own.


You still have until the 14th of March to enter our
ATC, Coins and Chunky's Challenge which you can find
either on the side-bar, or on facebook.
You could win free stamps.

Hope to see you there.

In the meantime,
Happy Stamping!
