ARTIST TRADING CARDS

Here are some ATC's I've done recently. The robot (above/left) is my favorite. I was going to hand draw a little robot guy but it didn't turn out very good. Instead I used a gold and silver pack of ephemera I received as a swap years ago. Super inspiring little packet!


I just found this great bird punch for the birds and heart ATC (above/right). I am LOVING collage right now. I have a good assortment of paper scraps and trinkets.
I've even found a use for the butterfly feathers from my sisters wedding (right). Of course most of my work has at least a little glitter!

How nifty! I am just not learning ATC's myself. I particularly like the last one.

Hi there! I'm Emmanem handmade from Swapbot. I really love your blog and am psyched to follow. I've been wanting to start making some ATCs but haven't done them before - how did you get started? Any tips? I'm mostly into sewing and working with fabric but want to do more paper stuff.

Awesome blog!
