541  Re: THE MARCH GALLERY in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by rackycoo on: March 16, 2007 10:41:44 AM
Here's a card I did for a personal swap. It was done using a copy of a photo and the contact paper transfer method (see the technique thread for details!), layered over some origami paper. The corner decorations are rubdowns.

Sorry this took so long to post, but here is the wonderful handpainted card minouette sent me. "R" is for red, raven, and rose.


Thanks, minouette! This is a great card. You are a talented painter.  Smiley

Get your wist buttons ready, because I got an amazing package from knitting_nyxxie today! Nyxxie was a knitting fool to get all this done, and then some! I had asked her for some knitted dishcloths, and here's what she sent:

4 really nice ones, plus an open weave shopping bag, straight off my wists! I know I'll be using this all the time.

Then, there's

a great skinny scarf, a tube of fun buttons, and a button bracelet and earring set in my favorite colors, again right off my wist!

And if that wasn't enough, she sent me a folder of ephemera (sorry, it got left out of the photos) and these four atc's:


Thanks so much, nyxxie! This was a great package! My only issue is going to be keeping some of this away from my girls. They must never know of the scarf and the bag. The dishcloths...well, they'll never try to get to those, so no worries there! Cheesy

My replacement card from bobolink came today, and it was so worth the wait! Check out the circus cats! I love the distressed look she did. Thanks, bobo. I'm sorry you had to send me two cards.

I got my matchbox from Mickele today!

It was stuffed with some ribbons, sequins, stickers, animal eyes, and a tiny zipper. And when I say stuffed, I mean stuffed! When I opened it, everything sort of popped out, sort of like those trick peanuts.  Cheesy Thanks, Mickele, and thanks, katxena and KCGal for organizing such a fun swap!

546  Make time for fun! ~ the atc clock in CHALLENGE 17 ENTRIES by rackycoo on: February 25, 2007 07:52:16 AM
I took a clock (pictured below) that once belonged to my daughter, and altered it to look like this:


It displays 12 Artist Trading Cards (atc's), one for each hour of the day. The center of the clock says "Make time for fun!" Here are a couple of closeups of the atcs themselves:
1-6:


and 7-12:


Obviously, I was influenced by the zetti style of artist Teesha Moore. Some of the images of children I used are unknowns, but the pictures on numbers 1, 4, and 8 are from a family photo, number 7 is my great aunt, and numbers 3 and 5 are my grandmothers as little girls. My grandmother in #5 was an artist. I think she'd be so pleased to see herself with the stripey zetti legs and her little pointed hat!

Here's the "before" picture:   Grin

I got my box from katxena today! It's great, and has some goodies in it that I know I will be using soon. Thanks, katxena! You managed to stuff a lot of things into that little box.  Cheesy

Here's a great hair card from alteredmommy! I love the textured and layered background. I wish it showed up better in this picture. Here's "Practice Day at Hairstyling School":


Thanks, alteredmommy!

My card from alteredmommy came today! It's a sideshow card about sword swallowing. Now that I see how it's done, I may have to take it up as my new hobby.  Cheesy Thanks, alteredmommy, this card looks great with all my other carnival cards!
