ATC = Artist Trading Card
Chandra recently hosted a giveaway for this book on her beautiful blog and guess who was the lucky winner!
I've joined up with a few ATC swap groups, so this book will soon be full! Chandra kindly started off my collection with this beautiful card she created herself:
Isn't it gorgeous? It looks lovely nestled in one of the pockets of the book.
In this day of digital images and reproductions original artwork is priceless. ATC's are the size of a standard trading card...2.5 X 3.5 inches, and swapping them is a great way to connect with other artists and build a little collection of inspiring pieces. There is a good description of ATC's here if you'd like to learn more about them.
Even the back of the card has a personal touch!
