Adorable Distress Oxide Spray Unicorn Artist Trading Cards


Hello everyone and thank you for joining me!! Today I have these Adorable Distress Oxide Spray Unicorn Artist Trading Cards so let's jump right in!!


When I make Artist Trading Cards I love to use Strathmore Ready Cut 5x7 watercolour paper because it makes 4 perfect Artist Trading Card Bases as an ATC is cut to 2.5 by 3.5 inches, that is the only rule to making ATC's.


To create my background I brought in two Distress Oxide Sprays in Salvaged Patina and Kitsch Flamingo, and Milled Lavender Distress Ink Spray, working back and forth between the sprays until I had a background I liked.


I then stamped out several images from the Unicorn Love stamp set in a Copic friendly ink on Neenah Solar white cardstock. I then used several Copic Markers to colour in my images N0, N2, N4 and N6 on the body and hooves of my unicorns and Rv00, YR01, Y00, G00, B01, and V01 on the mane and tail, I also added some white highlights and glitter for a bit of added shine. Once all the colouring was done I fussy cut out my images with some mini snips and added some thin 3D foam squares on the back.


I felt my backgrounds needed a bit more pizzazz so I added some random stamping for some added texture and splashed on some perfect pearls. I then adhered my unicorns and added some Moonshine sequins to fill out the extra space. If you would like a more in-depth look at how I made these Artist Trading Cards please check out the video below. I also have a full supplies list below the video if you would like to know exactly what I used. Thank you so much for stopping by and I cannot wait to see you again soon!!
