ATC's and Sports Day.

It's a big day today, my little girl who is almost 3, has her very first sports day.  Woo hoo.  I'm not quite sure how a sports day will work with three year olds, but hey, it should be a giggle.  Despite all this excitement, I have still had a little time to do something arty, and something that I've never done before.  I made my very first ATC's or Artist Trading Cards.  I've never thought of doing them before but I will  make some more now that I know how quick and simple they are.  For those of you who are not sure about them, they are small (playing card size) works of art that you swap with others.  Simple eh?

It was one of my new cyber friends who suggested we do a little swap, usually there are a few of you involved, but this time it's just the two of us.
I made my cards the same way I have been doing my Paper Doll Chicks...take a look

I used recycled handmade card for the base layer, then worked on top adding some collage elements and the butterfly transfer.  Ooh how I love those transfers.

This is the butterfly one, I stuck the body and head, then used more transfers over the top.  I glazed the ATC with gloss medium.

I told you I was loving the transfers Lol

My finished (first ever) ATC's Paper Doll Chicks

So it's off to the Post Office for me, and off to the USA for these girls.

On your marks, get set, GO.

Ooh Rachelle I am very impressed I love the dolls faces . They remind me if something from my childhood. Possibly Sascha dolls do you remember them ? X
