Chinese Coin ATC

Create an Artist Trading Card with embellishments such as a Chinese coin. ATC projects like this one by Lisa Fulmer are a great way to create miniature pieces of art.

Coin ATC


  • 2.5"x3.5" heavy white cardstock, such as Strathmore Acrylic Paper, linen finish
  • 3 colors of Liquitex Soft Body Acrylic paint (I used yellow, copper and green)
  • Metallic embossing powder, clear inkpad, heat gun, rubber stamp
  • Chalk ink (I used a teal blue)
  • Pastel pencil (I used a blue Carbothello pencil)
  • Metal embellishment, such as a chinese coin
  • Craft glue
  • Small paintbrush, foam finger dabber, cosmetic sponge


  1. Dab the 3 colors of paint on the ATC cardstock in a random pattern, working quickly to smudge and blend the colors together with the cosmetic sponge.

  2. Use the brush to dab texture on top as desired.
  3. Set ATC aside and allow the paint to dry for 5-10 minutes.
  4. On a scrap piece of cardstock, stamp circle outlines of paint using the open end of the finger dabber, set aside to dry.


  5. Stamp an image on the ATC with clear ink, sprinkle the image with embossing powder.
  6. Shake or brush off the excess powder and use the heat tool to melt the powder, set aside.
  7. Fill in the circles on the scrap paper with a small amount of paint, smudge with the finger dabber.
  8. After the circles are completely dry, add some contrasting shadow with a pastel pencil and smudge with your finger.
  9. Trim the scrap paper to 1"x2.25" and glue to the ATC.
  10. Swipe the edges of the ATC with chalk ink.
  11. Glue the metal embellishment on the card.
