Artist Trading Card's
Artist Trading Cards Swap (ATC)
ATCs are collectable pieces of art, self-made miniature works of art, a brilliant idea born of the older sports-themed trading cards.
The one rule that makes an ATC is the dimensions, they must be 2.5"x3.5", or 64x89mm there are no other particular rules to follow.
You can combine different materials and elements to create unique and one of a kind cards. You can find inspiration on the internet in different craft forums
We will have new themes each month to work with and it doesn't matter if you are just starting or if you've been making them for months or years.
It's fun and interesting to see what others are doing with their ATCs, you can get some ideas, tips, tricks, find out a new technique, and get inspired!
We will have both posted and hand delivered swaps so everyone from everywhere can join in the fun!
The week each theme is due you will be able to post or drop off your ATCs.?
