Artist Trading Cards

alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5310072978830314066" />






These are my ATC's that I made for a swap over at scrap.com. It was a mystery swap so we could do whatever we wanted, there was no theme. This is actually my face in all these cards and if you want to know how to start these out to make some of your own unique cards, you can check it out here on my blog. I really had a lot of fun with these and I will probably make some more of these type of cards to swap. They are each a mini piece of art and each one is different as you can very well see. These are all hand drawn and colored with Bic Mark-it markers with some chalks to do the skies. They are all originals; one of a kind. NOW the hard part to this was to figure out which one of these 20 do I want to personaly keep? I will be swapping 19 of them out and keeping just one! oh the decision!! Everyone in my family had their own favorite, but I just can't seem to decide. I think I will keep the "got milk" one, which is the top left one. I laugh everytime I see it with the milk mustache, I think I secretly always wanted to be the "got milk" model! LOL... it was my husband's idea to add the milk mustache, I had "got milk" on her pail, but then he suggested that and I thought, brillent and fun!! and now I get to be the "got milk" model!! LOL... Now, I took this pic inside so it is ok, if you want a closer look at these you can click on the picture and it enlarges it for a better close-up or you can click on that funky code next to the pic, not sure how I got that there or how to get rid of it but it also takes you to a larger pic LOL. Also, if you see white specks everywhere it is because I used a chalk with sparkles in it and that is the sparkles sparkling, they really don't have those specks in real life. I alway like to do the backs up too to my ATC cards and I do these in the program Print Shop 23. This is the back side of these cards.I know a lot of people don't put much thought into the back, but I personally think it just finishes off the card nicely. I guess I just want the whole card to be a piece of art! If anyone reads this and would like to trade a card with me just leave me a note and I would love to trade! These cards will be traded out, but I would love to make some more! Thanks for visiting my blog today and make sure you leave me a note and tell me which one "you" like, I would love to know! :O)
