Artist Trading Cards with Brutus Monroe!

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing some of those FUN Artist Trading Cards - or ATCs! If you have never made them before, it's just like a miniature canvas for your art. And -- you can add them to a card later if you want! I have a binder or two full or them from stamping friends over the years, and they are so fun to browse.
Today I am using one Mixed Media stencil - GEARS - and making two different styles. I used sentiments from TREE OF THANKS. One style uses APRICOT GLITTER GLAZE in the background, and the other uses blended inks to look like mixed metals. 
 I taped my stencil down on white cardstock and applied the glaze with a palette knife. Once dry, I stamped two sentiments on vellum and embossed using RAVEN embossing powder.
On the second duo, I used a Blending Brush for the blended ink background, and PENNY embossing powder for the sentiments. I added some Penny EP in a few places on the cards, and then used Copper Metallic cardstock for the mat.
Do you like making little mini masterpieces? They are 2.5x3.5 inches and so fun to make!
