Artist Trading Coins for Country View Challenges

Hello dear visitors and a special welcome to my 100th follower! I am very happy to see you here!

November already and time for a new challenge over at Country View Challenges.
This month the theme is: Artist Trading Coins!

I love to make this little treasure coins, they are so cute and a great opportunity to use your scraps or parts of a not very well accomplished backgroundpaper.

Here are my ATCoins:

And this is what I did:

I used this paper, on which I cleaned my brayer 
and tried some new stamps.
Well - never throw away something! 😉

I punched out some 2 1/2" circles.

I matted them with cardboard to make them sturdier....

sealed the surface with transparent Gesso...

 on some parts I brushed crackle glaze for more interest.
 I took some stencils and Distress Oxides in matching colors to add some texture, ...

 and framed the coins with black soot Distress Oxide.
 I wanted to have some white space, so I took white acrylic paint and spreaded it with my fingers.
 I tinted tiny distressed pieces of cloth, ...

...gathered some small and tiny flowers...

and glued them down

Next I mixed Mini Art Stones with golden splash paint and added some white glue before I decorated the coins.

Now I sprinkled some glitter on top and when everything was dry, I added word stickers and some white highlights with a gelpen here and there.
Last step was to glue some scrap paer in black to the back and stamp the date.

Well, I fear I have overdone them a little bit - but, it is what it is.

Here are the coins one after another:

That´s it for today!
I hope, you will jump in to the fun and show us your little Artist Trading Coins! You know, you can win a 20 £ voucher for the shop!

Thank you for your visit and have a wonderful day!
