Some more ATC 's

ATC's I have made recently. I have so far traded to Korea,Canada, USA , Denmark, netherlands. Thailand, China and a few more I cannot remeber lol

Ladies of the 30's had a lot of fun with these.

A pocketed ATC.
Two below are roses decoupaged with different surrounding decorations.

I used a thin metal girl as the main image.

Just a bit of lady ga ga in film reel.

The two below have a smilare theme of a decoupaged plant with a metal frame with a butterfly inside to give the illusion of a magnifying glass.

Had great fun making this under water scene. I heat embossed 2 blues to give a water effect , a brass ships wheel ij the corner with tiny fish , starfish and sea horses layered amongst the wee.

This one has layers of papere topped with some material flowers with gems in the centre.

Simple gifts

I don't know if this happens to you, I never have enough note cards and thankyou cards and its always good to have a few emegency Birthday cards.
I just wanted to share with you what I have made for someone and how you can simply present them.

I did a bundle of six Birthday Cards. Simply stamped with inked edges on retro style card stock.

Then a bundle of thankyou cards. You can never have too many of these!

Lastly a small bundle of notelets. Simply stamped again with inked edges.

Then some simple notelets with a dragonfly heat embossed patteren.

As you can see once they are done I simply tie them together with a ribbon.

Get well soon cards.

Get well soon cards can be a difficult one's to create as subject matter can be a little limiting ( well I find it difficult lol).

Mrs H I hope you like them.

I tried to do a few male orientated cards as in the shops they all seem so feminine.

Got the ATC bug.

Well I have been having loads of fun making ATC's (artist trading cards 2 1/2inch by 3 1/2 inch).

Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches (6cm X 9cm),small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of the mailart movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc). The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold.

I have joined group where each month a theme is given and you make something with that theme.

This was dreaming in colour theme-
Collaged cello

Layers of butterflies. Base is postal stamps from around the world and topped with 3d butterflies.

The three below all have pockets and have a vintage theme.

These are my 1930's ladies.

I am having a blast creating these and trading with other people around the world.
