A.T.C.'s are FABULOUSLY Fun! Week 2 of Anything But a Card Challenges #18

Happy Sunday! We hope you are enjoying your weekend. Here at Anything But a Card, the rest of our Design Team is here to inspire with more projects for Challenge 18 - "A.T.C.'s". We are pretty sure you will become addicted to ATC's {if you weren't already}!!! We can't wait to see your A.T.C. masterpieces and we hope that you will join in and share them with us!

A little bit about A.T.C.'s {ARTIST TRADING CARDS}:

This style originated with a project initiated in 1997 by Zurich artist M.Vänçi Stirnemann. CLICK HERE to view gallery of participating artists. What a GRAND idea this artist came up with and now is a global creative trend.

(1) their size is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" { 64 mm x 89 mm } - could be horizontal or vertical.
(2) A.T.C.'s are meant to be traded - never sold.
(3) they are originals, small editions and, most importantly, self-produced. Anybody can produce them.

This small fun format is quite addictive – can be of any theme and using any media. You can even have windows, doors and pull-outs if you are really inventive. We invite you to play along and HAVE FUN creating A.T.C.'s!!!

The A.T.C. Extravaganza continues...let's see what the rest of our DT has created for you!

Please click on the designers' name to visit their blog.

We hope our designers have INSPIRED you and you are off and RUNNING to your studio to create. Be sure to link your projects up right HERE!  You still have another week to create and link up! Thanks for stopping by and tune in tomorrow for the Featured Artists from Challenge 17!  :)
