Euch allen einen schönen Mittwoch Morgen!
A happy Wednesday morning to all of you!
Artist Trading Cards (short ATC's) are small original pieces of art, which are created as unique piece or as little series. They are collected or traded, for example at the “Stempelmekka” or at other meetings for stampers. In the www there even are special swaps for ATC's.
- sie haben immer die feste Größe von 2,5“ x 3,5“ (ca. 6,4cm x 8,9cm)
Creating these artworks you have to obey only two rules:
- the measurements always are 2,5” x 3,5” (ca. 6,4cm x 8,9cm)
- they are never sold, but exchanged or traded
You can buy the blank cards pre-cut, but of course it is more inexpensive to cut them yourself. This way you'll always have the perfectly matching cardstock for you card – and haven't we all got lots of stash to use?
On the back of the ATC you write your name (your blog address), date and title of the artwork. You can do that by handwriting or you use a form created with your PC. There are even a lot of stamps available to mark the backside. I`ve got this one:
I do hope I have inspired you to try out this small format yourself – have fun!
