This was not only my first go at making an ATC (artist trading card), but also my first ATC swap, via Swap-Bot! The swap theme was for a favorite movie, of which one of mine is Amelie - if you haven't seen it yet, then you're missing out big time, Netflix it now! I actually made a series of three, you can see the others on Flickr, here, and they really are great fun to make. They are small, have to be 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches, so they don't take too long. I like the whole mixed media and collage look, and it makes it such fun to play around with.
These were my first attempt and I like the way they came out, I hope others do too, particularly my swap partner!
I am making the next ones to a bird theme, with some inchies as well, and I can't wait to start playing with that. I love finding new creative outlets, especially ones that allow me to use my stash, like this one! Goodness knows I have a lot of stuff to keep me going for a while!
- here it is all ready to be sent out, along with some extra goodies!
