This is an artist trading card (ATC) made for a swap at Art for the Creative Mind.
The ATC’s theme was to be “the eyes have it”.
I had a rubber stamp with the cat shape that is shown. I stamped the car on light card board and heat embossed with pewter colored embossing powder.
Next, I glued small seed beads along the edges of the cat. I added some glitter glue where I thought it might look good.
Finally, in keeping with the theme, I glued large red rhinestone beads to form the cats eyes.
The background of the ATC is a lovely velvet fabric, given to me by a friend who sews.
I had some red and gold mesh fabric that looked good with the purple velvet, and also matched the cat’s red eyes.
The ATC is on its way to its new owner.
