ATC’s. – Artist Trading Cards.

Now for some light relief from the stresses of the Challenge. I little  drawing and painting for Sunday relaxation. I have been fascinated by a trend I discovered on the internet, swapping ATC’s. They are diminutive creations that swappers exchange with others all over the world. So I decided to make some cards that have to be 3.5 x 2.5 inches precisely. I made a template and then cut up an old watercolour painting from years ago and started creating. It was great fun !! Here are the 12 that I squeezed out of the cards cut from that one painting. I don’t think that mine compare favourably with the elaborate embellished works of art that the true ATC swappers produce, but then these are a first attempt.

    These are lovely Barbara! I made some a few years ago but couldn’t find anyone to swap with – maybe we can do that sometime!
