My First ATC’s

Today I made 5 artist trading cards. It was a lot of fun. I am in 2 swaps next month. One is a Valentine theme and the other is a book theme. On the Valentine ones I painted the background with watercolors. Then embellished them.



I also painted this picture today using my watercolors. I used a black pen to highlight the outlines. I put it in the frame and now it is the hall bathroom.

  1. Beautiful ATC’s! I have been wanting to try my hand at them but I have not done any yet – maybe I will be inspired by yours and make some this weekend 🙂
    I just signed up for your Fabric Postcard Swap and as per your suggestion I came to your blog to look at the sample cards you posted – really nice! In hopes that you approve my participation, I have a couple questions: Are the cards stiff or soft/floppy? Since I would be mailing internationally and would put mine in an envelope, do I still write postcard at the back?
    Thank you!

  2. Holly,
    Your trading cards are beautiful. You surprise me all the
    time with the talents you have. Watercolor painting is the first medium that I used. I love watercolors but haven’t done any in such a long time.
