Artist Trading Cards ,,,, ATC’s

Wikipedia Definition

Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards,[1] or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches,small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold.

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $15 voucher is up for grabs :-)

For my ATC I chose this very cute House MouseSew What’ image. I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink and then distressed the edges using a paper distresser. I used a little SU brown card and sewed the image to the backing. I wrapped some Jillibean Twine around it a couple of times and tied a double bow, I then used a TH stamp from the Haberdashery set, stamped onto shrink plastic with black stazon,inked and shrunk. I then popped that onto the bow to finish :-)

So now it's your turn !! If you would like a chance to win a $15 Voucher to spend in the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Superstore then get out your stamps and crayons and join in :-)
