Let's talk....

about ATCs

Just what is an ATC?  An ATC is an Artist Trading Card.  They are 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" little works of heART.  


Here are several that I have created for different swaps/exchanges.  You don't need any specific reason to created an ATC, just go with the flow and see what you come up with.  

I like to have a stash of them on hand for when I need a quick card.  I just pull one out and adhere it to a card front and I am ready to go.  

Creating ATC's is also a great way to try out a new product or medium.  

All you need are some basic supplies, here are my favorites:

Cardstock
Stamps
Ink
Tombow Dual Brush Pens or Irojiten Color Pencils (for coloring in all of the little details)
Tombow Foam Tabs (for popping elements up)
Tombow Xtreme Glue Tape (to keep everything nice and snug and where it should be)
Ribbon/Rhinestones/Other embellishments.

Have you ever made ATC's?  Do you trade them? Swap them?

Leave me a comment and let me know as I would love to know what you do with these little works of heART.
