I've been having fun making some Artist Trading Coins with Vera Lane Studio images.
My first set of coins features images from two sets, 'Under The Sea' and 'Seahorse and Octopus'. Neither of these sets are in the shop, but are still available upon request - the thumbnails of the images are below.
I love this little mermaid - look at her fishy eyelid! I coloured the images with my usual Copic markers and added some white Posca pen highlights. I added plenty of Diamond Stickles to all the images for sparkle, and some Glossy Accents to the mermaid's eyes The images were fussy cut and placed on a Brusho background which had also been spritzed with Glimmer Mist - the shimmer is lovely! The edge of the coin was inked with Jet Black ink. Finally I added some golden Prills to resemble sand and added two Tim Holtz Small Talk stickers.
Under The Sea Seahorse and Octopus
My second set of ATCoins feature the cutesie, quirky couple, Meg and Doug, from the Anniversary Set.
Again the images of Meg and Doug were coloured with Copic markers. Glossy Accents and Diamond Stickles were added here and there. This time I added elements from the Bow Bee collage sheet - some quirky flowers and leaves. They are glued onto a Distress Oxide background which has added texture from stamped text and adding modelling paste through a Tiny Dots stencil. The coin is finished with black ink around the edge and white Posca pen dots. The words are from an older VLS set called Helga's Hedgehog.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
