ATC - Artist Trading Cards....

What can catch your creative side and get you hooked?
Artist Trading Cards or easier said and better known~ ATC's.
Artist Trading Cards are miniature works of art 2-1/2 X 3-1/2 inches or about the same size as a baseball card. The ATC movement started in Switzerland where individuals started trading each others pieces of miniature art. You can use any type of media that you want. The size is really the only stipulation. The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold. I have sold many of mine. They are great because you can get a great piece of miniature art at a great price. On E-bay I have seen ATC's running from $1.00 up to sometimes as high as $50.00. You can find many ATC groups in blogland with artist loving to trade cards.

Yvette, I have pulled up/enlarged each of your ATC cards and I am wondering if you are using wax to seal them? I love each one but my favorites are the ones with Scriptures. I am going to try to make some for my prayer partners at church. Lovely pieces,
Sharon
