ATC's

Forget Artist Trading Cards, I should start calling it my Artists Traded Collection. I took a look through these tonight and I've been creating and trading ATC's since the Fall of 2005. What a wonderful, beautiful collection I have. Take a look at this book...

It's still got room to grow!!

Tonight was another great ATC night at the Scrapbook Cupboard. There were 10 different, unique and fabulous cards created. Take a look at all the wonderful cards traded tonight...

We had a last minute drop out so I created two of them for this swap. These are my two...


The one on the left is red paper that was run through the cuttlebug in the distressed lines embossing folder. I then swiped the 'hills' with white pigment ink, and embossed it with white UTEE. I cut half up and folded the sides to look like a tent. The collage photos inside and on the top is from Inka Stamps. And the ATC on the right has a circus tent. The tent and little guy is from a Close to my Heart stamp set. I embossed the tent in red and cut out. The background was stippled using Frayed Burlap Distress Ink from Ranger, a green dye ink from Close to my Heart and Sail Boat Blue and Cloudy Blue Pigment Ink from Ranger. The little guy was colored in using a white pigment pen and a red slick writer. Oh, yah and the grass area has some Ice Stickles swiped on it.
It was fun to create these little masterpieces. I really enjoy this swap. I'm looking forward to the next meeting!

If anyone would like to know more about artist trading cards and their history, or how to make artist trading cards, they may also be interested in a couple of articles that I've written.

You go girl!!! I'm behind on my commitment to my group, probably won't renew as there just aren't enough hours in my day for all the things I'm trying to do. Was fun doing it though!!!
