Challenge #20 - 12 Jan 2009 - An ATC

Welcome back everyone. I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year. Thank you to everyone who joined in our last challenge. A winner will be announced tomorrow so please check back to see who the lucky person is. Apologies also for my lack of comments on your beautiful work, I am so busy here with everything (just check out how neglected my own blog So!! Are you all ready to get crafting yet?? If so then why not take part in this nice easy challenge to get you started.

Our challenge this week is :~

To make an Artist Trading Card, otherwise known as an ATC. ATC's are little cards, similar to a baseball card. The only standard requirement for an ATC is that its height and width measurements be 2.5" x 3.5" (64 x 89 mm), either vertical (portrait) or horizontal (landscape) orientation. The sky is the limit for every other aspect of the art.

Please read THIS info if you want to know more on the background of ATCs. For a cutting guide, click HERE.

Here's what our lovely DT have produced and don't forget to check out their blogs for more details!!








Please leave us a comment with a link to your card. For those who don't have a blog please feel free to email them to me.

Gorgeous work by the DT! I think ATC's are fun, but sometimes difficult with such little amount of space. As you can tell I haven't ventured into inchies yet. :D Thanks for all the great inspiration.

Wahoo! I'm a huge HM fan and while I haven't been able to participate in all the challenges when they are posted, I'm slowly trying to work my way through the one's I missed. This is the first ATC card I made and it was so fun to use a HM stamp for it!
