For You – ATC

For those of you who don’t know about Artist Trading Cards or ATC please read info below.

Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards,or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches (6 cm X 9 cm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.). The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold.

For further info click on this link.


I have lots of ATC to show you, but I will show you this one for now.

I stamped the image twice once of the atc and once on a scrap of white card.  I coloured around the stamped image using Sakura Stardust pens and used a Whispers inpad to ink the atc card blue.

Hope you like it.
