Artist Trading Coins II for Country View Challenges

Hello everybody!
We have a wonderful theme this month at Country View Challenges, chosen by the lovely Debs - Artist Traiding Coins!

These little cuties are really addictive, they are so versatile to create and really fun. If you didn´t try to make some of them, you really should! And if you do some, why not link the result of your play to our challenge? We really would love to see them, and you have the chance to win a 20 £ voucher to spend in the shop!

Here is my second row of ATCoins

And this is how I made them:

Recently I found a recipe on how to make your own Gelli plate - so I gave it a try and once the home made plate was ready to use, I had a play.

This paper is the ghost print of a page and I loved the look of it.

I cut out some coins (2 1/2" diameter), glued them on some cardboard to make them sturdier and distressed them with some Distress Oxides in walnut stain.

I used the new Visible Image Stamps "you are not alone", which you can find in the shop here, and stamped the hands on specialty stamping paper with Archival Ink in Jet Black. When dry, I colored them with Faber Castell Polycromos, fuzzy cut them.
Next I took another stamp set from Visible Image called "Ahead of our time", which you can also find in the shop here. I took the stamp platform and stamped the little girl and man on specialty stamping paper. I stamped two times with Archival Ink Jet Black to make sure, the little figures are really black inked. When dry I fuzzy cut them too.

Now I arranged the pieces on my ATCoins, surrounded the little figures with a white Gelpen and added words from Tim Holtz´s Small Talk Stickers. On the back of the coins I glued some light weight brown cardstock and framed them on the edges with a black brush marker.

Here are my coins one after the other:

Now I hope you liked them and I´m looking forward to seeing your little cuties!
Thank you for your visit today and have a good time!
