Getting Started with ATCs

Just a quick post to share some ATCs (Artist Trading cards) I created recently, I'm quite new to this, but thanks to Yuzz of Blossominch who got me into trading them I'm hooked ! It's a fun and creative way to use up scraps and small little embellishments and patterns, plus experimenting with various techniques. Also, getting ATCs from others are so rewarding as you get a piece of their crafty soul and learn new techniques. At this point, my ATCs are still very much more paper instead of mixed media, I guess that reflects my present crafting style. I suppose I will explore more mixed media techniques eventually, but currently I find myself making them pretty much the same way I make my cards heheh :)

Here are some of my favs from the first batch of ATCs I made:

G45 Domestic Goddess! Lotsa fussy cutting here :)

One of my favs! Canvas backing and stitched circles :)

Spray misted background.

Stamped and grungy ATC





This is my latest batch of ATCs:




One of my personal favs :)

Embossed and embossed.



That's all for now, thanks for looking! Now I've gotta go and give Lucas his bath :) Have a nice day all!
