Daily Paper Prompt #26: ATC

This prompt is to create three artist trading cards.

If you would like to see the artist trading cards that I've made over the years, here's a little video!

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.

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!
