Anniversary Artist Trading Coins

 Hello and hurray!

For our 100th challenge at Country View Challenges I made some Artist Trading Coins for your inspiration.

As it is a special challenge, you have this time two chances to win a voucher for the shop!
This is what you have to do:

Remember you must take inspiration from one of the DT makes, such as a colour scheme, technique, design idea, stamp or die motif for your make to be in with the chance to win and, of course,include "100" (or One hundred in any language) for a chance to win a £20 voucher to the Country View Crafts shop

"This month there is also a special prize for a commenter
on todays' CVC and DT blog posts. So Hop to it!"

 I used a lot of technics, supplies and mediums, so I guess you can find something that you want integrate into your work.
So here are the steps:

First I wanted to make a collage paper, I have seen that recently from Tiffany Solorio, you can watch her video here. So I gathered tissue paper, a whole bunch of stamps and black Archival ink and started to build my background.

I started with the 100 in different sizes and went on with a lot of different stamps.

This is the result I got - I really like it!

Next I punched my coins with a 21/2" circle punch. I needed three for the back, three from cardboard (if it is too thick, cut it with siccors) and three from cardstock.

To create the background color I used Distress Oxides and spreat the inks with a brayer.

Time to use my collage paper. I cut out pieces and glued it down with Matte Medium.

After drying I filed the edges with a nail file.

For more interest I added some crackle glaze here and there.

For some shimmer I painted parts with extreme sheen gold paint.

For my vocal point I stamped some words and the beautiful butterflies from rubber dance on white Bristol paper and heat embossed it with black nuvo fine detail embossingpowder.

I colored the butterflies with liquid watercolors. When dry, I cut them out and glued them onto my coins. The coins I framed with black acrylic paint and added some white splatters.

Here they are! Very hard to get good pictures, so sorry for the photo quality.

I hope you feel inspired and want to join in with our anniversery challenge.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for your visit!
