ATC's


I did some ATC's a while back...freebird's ATC's reminded me...and for the base I took a very, very old watercolor I did (and hated) and cut it up and just loved the results....so I added some punched images (cats, dragonfly and dragon), some translucent gold paper and some very tissue-like japanese paper and layered them....it was sure fun!
I keep meaning to make some beaded ATC's, but I'm not sure I could part with them, so I've kept putting off doing it.

Oh what a wonderful way to use things we don't want to throw out but are not totally happy with. I love the idea. And I love those ATC's
I have just started doing that.
Have a great weekend,
Sunni

they are fun, aren't they, sunni!

Artist Trading Cards, janet...I bet you'd have a blast incorporating some of your gorgeous photos into atc's...

I'm glad I reminded you to get these out and show us. They do look very nice. Love your dragonflies on them. Isn't it fun to take something so-so and turn it into something great? For beaded ATC's try adding just 3-5 beads on a few cards and work up to a whole beaded card. By then, you'd be ready to trade some of them!
