It's a mystery! .... A tale of Sherlock Holmes!

 









Hi lovelies, hope you are well? Today I am sharing some Sherlock Holmes artist trading cards that I created for a swap over at My Altered Reality.

Each month, Kim hosts an ATC swap, with free image sheets to use in your creations. Please do visit her Blog for more details on how to enter the monthly swaps. 

















Using the 'It's a mystery' image sheets, I created three ATC's for my swap partner. I started with three blank kraft cards measured at 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches. 











For the card on the left, I decorated it with the dog tooth design paper and one of the Sherlock newspaper clippings. I then fussy cut the image of Sherlock Holmes and adhered them to the card. I have edged everything with Vintage Photo Distress ink. 

I then cut some cogs using a cog die and black cardstock. I ran those through an embossing folder to give them some extra interest. I then glued them to some vellum to give a see-through backing. 






For the card on the right; I added some vintage style washi tape, vintage ticket and a Tim Holtz mini quote sticker. 








Lastly, for the middle card, I again used the images from the free sheets provided. I took a piece of ephemera which I backed on to Kraft card stock and then used my Cropodile to add an eyelet. 









Thank you so much for stopping by, I really do appreciate your visit and kind comments!
