The second theme for the September ATC trade was Crown Jewels. Since there was so much in the press about Prince Harry's escapades while he was in Las Vegas recently, I decided to do a spoof of the headline on my Artist Trading Card.
On the front, I printed off the headline on a piece of white stock, and inked the edges with black soot chalk. This was an outer pocket. Then on the inner pocket that slides out, I stamped the English flag stamp on white stock, inking the stamp with the fired brick and faded denim Distress Markers by Tim Holtz.
On the inner most card I printed a sticker that read, "personally I don't see what all the fuss is about!" and stamped an image of a large crown and embellished it with stick-on gemstones and lots of stickles to make it really sparkly!
It really caused a chuckle at the trading card meeting. Everyone broke out in laughter, and I was so surprised, it really made my day!
I guess they were expecting something else????????????
Have a wonderful day, and a great weekend. This only goes to show you that a little thing like this card can cause laughter, which in many ways is considered the best medicine.
