Anything But A Card Challenges #18 - ATC Extravaganza!!!

Good Morning Everyone! It's time for a new challenge here at Anything But a Card! We want to thank everyone who participated in the "April Showers" Challenge and sharing all of your wonderful creations with us!

It's time for a new Challenge...  Challenge 18 is all about "A.T.C.'s". For this challenge create an A.T.C. {artist trading card}. We are going to have an ATC Extravaganza. So for this challenge we would like EVERYONE to make ATC's. This tiny format is wonderful and lends itself to making mini masterpieces.

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!!!

Let's see what part of our DT has created - and let the celebration of A.T.C.'s begin!
