ATC's with the Dragonflies

Goodmorning fellow crafters. There's another great creative challenge waiting for you with the Dragonflies. Don't think you liked last week's Zentangling so hopefully more of you will be inspired to create three ATC's. The theme is Anything Goes but no cards only ATC's.

"An artist trading card (or ATC for short) is a tiny, original piece of art created with the intention of swapping or trading it with another artist, not selling it. The one rule an artist trading card must adhere to is the size. An ATC must be 2.5x3.5 inches or 64x89mm."

We have two fabulous sponsors this week and they are:
                                                           Prize: $7 to spend in the shop
                                                               Prize: 3 digis of winners choice

I chose to play with a set of Christmas related images from Pickled Pot Pourri to make my matching ATCs.

I covered each base card with some gold figured tissue paper and netting. I coloured the digis digitally and  used my sharpy pens to add squiggles. This was to give an impression of texture. I then added liquid pearls, peel off waste, embellishments, sentiments and ribbon bows all from my stash. As you can see I have used my fave  Xmassy colours in these ATC's and silver...always think it makes anything look Xmassie!!


As you can see you can play around a lot when creating these mini works of Art. So if you want to play and have fun why not give ATCs a go I know you'll enjoy making them like I did.
Off you pop to Crafting with Dragonflies and drool over the ATCs my teamies have created ......I promise you won't be disappointed!!
