My Favourite Artist Trading Card

If I were asked to choose my favourite artist trading card out of the many beautiful examples that Maria has produced, I think that it would have to be the delightful 'Adore'.

ATC 'Adore' by Maria Adams

It wouldn't be an easy choice, but what I especially like about this particular card is that vintage look and feel that I love so much, with those faded colours accented with random stampings embossed with gold embossing powder, and edged in real gold with a Krylon® pen. Isn't that butterfly beautiful? This picture really doesn't do the card justice.

This card was an opportunity for Maria to try out a new technique, combining acetate stamped with StazOn® ink and mixed metallic flakes.
