Fish Eye Eye Eye

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!

Hello Portal peeps.
Gail here today with a bright fishy Artist Trading Card. 
I love ATC's.  It's amazing how much art you can get on these small canvases.  
I went arty and had fun with layers and lots of repeat stamping.
That was the last challenge! but why forget a good technique??

I started with a piece of neon yellow card cut to ATC size (2.5" x 3.5").  I stamped and embossed Lost Coast Designs Fruit Pod background with gold tinsel embossing powder.
I took the fish head stamp from Lost Coast Designs Up Close and Personal set and stamped it three times on two scraps of white card.  Then I used a very small die from YNS to perforate the edge and coloured with a black marker so they looked a bit like postage stamps.

I cut a piece of vellum with my ATC die and stamped Lost Coast Designs Freedom Dictionary word twice down each side.  I added it to the atc base and added the fish at an angle.  Whilst doing this I managed to get a inky finger on one of the fish panels so in the spirit of art I added a few more.  I used neon red, orange and yellow gel pens to colour the fish eyes.
Thanks for dropping by.  Don't forget to join the ATC fun and check out the awesome inspiration from the team.  It's awesome!!!!   Hugz
