    Daily Paper Prompt #26: ATC

    Artist trading cards are made to be traded, never ever sold. Even smaller than an index card, just as risk-free, just as full of potential. The dimensions are 2.5 x 3.5" or the size of a playing card. Create collages, cut watercolor paper to size and splash paint, stitch around the edges and put a quote inside, make a collaged person with scrapbook paper, layer papers with words on top. The prompt is to create three artist trading cards. If you would like to see my collection of artist trading cards, I made a little video!

    I very much enjoyed the Artist Trading Cards (DPP #26) and got a bit carried away with it. I liked the idea of making cards that I could carry around with me, so I decided to use an actual deck of cards (ATC’s are the size of a playing card) and create some positive affirmation cards. I really would like to make a deck of inspirational scriptures as well. I painted each card with gesso first and then used acrylic paint to create a background. Some of the cards I simply pasted an inspirational quote on, others I used shapes (castle, woman, flowers) cut from an old book. Then I added a bit of stamping and watercolor here and there and some inspirational words cut from a magazine.

    Hi Tammy,
    I just wanted to tell you how much I'm enjoying the Daily Paper Prompts. I haven't exactly been doing them daily or in order, but that's okay by me - it's still fun. I haven't got around to posting any of my cards (yes, because of you and ICAD I am now totally addicted to index cards!) online yet, but will link up when I do.
    Sorry for not commenting sooner (and oftener!). I'll try to get better at that.
    Off to work on another prompt!
