Fun ATC's



I've been making lots of ATC's lately. The first was to make my swap partner laugh. She likes nature and it was senders choice. The second and third were for a Things with Wings swap. Both ATC's were for the same partner. She likes vintage, hearts, flowers and her name started with the letter E.

If you have not tried making an ATC (Artist Trading Card) before, it is fun and freeing. It measures 2.5"x3.5". It is a small space to create on. They have no limits and they aren't expensive to make. You get to use all of your scraps, stamps, paints, embellishments, ephemera, etc. They can be flat or dimensional. The base (your canvas) can be made using card stock, metal, stiffened fabric, cardboard, leather, etc. There are no rules except for the size. That has to be 2.5"x3.5". If you feel like it try it. It's fun! Everybody's doing it. lol

  2. Love these. I came via Mina at Green Witch with Sprinkles & then the Gypsy Blog list & now I'm checking out some awesome ATC's & totally love your Vintage Bird Tag too! Man it's so easy to travel in the virtual world compared to using public transport ;)

  4. Hi .. I just found your blog from the Gypsy Dreams Party. This is my first blog party and I am having such fun! I have eighteen blogs, but have only been doing this for a few months, so I have much to learn. I used to live in the Charleston area, actually Summerville with my late husband.. I visit there every few months, but am now living in Florida with my new husband. I love your blog and your background is so cute! It is so nice to meet you.. Donsie
