Art & Soul Vintage Metal Deck Card #7

OK, I’ve fallen behind in posting the pictures of my Art & Soul metal ATCs.

Here is #7 out of the 12 that I made in Hampton.

Frida Kahlo was definitely “not just an artist”. This is one of my favorites.

The resistors at the bottom were a fun wired element to add along with the beads.
The “L” on the other side came in our class goodie packs from Leighanna Light. I used some pattern paper on this side of the card along with paints. I find that my finger often makes a perfect paintbrush; it’s a nice way to dab the paint on. I brought the cheesecloth around from the front of the ATC too; that is such a good ingredient for collage and more!
