This month at Hailsham Stamp Club the theme for the monthly Artist Trading Card swap was ABC – Anything But Card. This was probably the most challenging subject as we all had to think of using surfaces which are not obvious when stamping. I found some MDF ATCs online which I painted with a layer of Gesso then a mix of orange and yellow paint. I stamped a large sunflower from Stampendous onto tissue and coloured it with pencils. I cut it out and used Liquitex Matt medium to adhere this centrally over 4 ATCs so that when I cut the tissue each ATC had a quarter of a sunflower. I stamped the word in the space and sealed with another coat of medium.
Here are all 9 of the swapped “cards” (we had 1 missing).
The other materials used were thin wood, hessian, calico, foam with metal and Grungepaper. Once again a wonderful collection from our very talented stampers.
