Bright ATCs with Butterbee Scraps

Good Morning Creatives!

Today is another beautiful day with Butterbee Scraps and today I am taking metals to a whole new level!

I recently made the BRIGHT ATC cards using some altered playing cards I had laying around.

How To

Start by choosing your base. I had these altered playing cards laying around so I decided to use them.

Choose your metal shapes.

Cover them with Gesso. This will allow your Silks to have a more vibrant color and adhere to your surface better.

Next paint all of them with fun, bright colors!

Keep going and have fun! I added multiple colors to some of my metals.

Allow them to dry completely before layering them on your cards.

Here are close-ups of the completed cards.

Closing Thoughts

I have been taking a little time out of the studio to hang with my kids here at the beginning of summer and boy…have I missed getting my hands dirty.

I hope today has inspired you to try something new and to smile with courage…even if you don’t feel it.

Have an amazing day.
