I'm finally starting my own ATC gallery here. I've been makign ATCs since 2006 and I had not made any in quite some time prior to joining the November Ongoing ATC swap. I'd almost forgotten how much fun they are to make. Almost all of my cards are sent out. I think I only have four I've made for myself, which have been placed in my altered journal. I'll update this OP as I create more cards. I actually sent a Raven theme card today to spookygrrrly that I'm eager to post (but won't just yet, because I don't want to spoil the surprise
) because it turned out just the way I wanted it to.
Without further ado, here are my ATCs. I hope you enjoy. I always welcome comments and critique.
This first one is a Craftster themed ATC I made for audio-astrophysics. It's inspired by one of the Craftster logos with the little cork figure. I used a self-adhesive cork sheet:
The next one was a Posture themed ATC for Prettyinpaisley:
This one was a Christmas themed ATC for MissDisney. I made a slide out insert with a snowglobe. I drew a tree and painted over it with Sparkle Podge to make it look like iridescent "snow" and then covered it with a piece of acetate to look like glass. The snowflakes are eyelets and the picture was cut from a vintage craft magazine:
This was a Gingerbread Man theme card I made for LindaP. I was inspired by the children's story book of the Gingerbread Man:
This picture is shamefully crooked, but it's a Mandalas themed ATC I made for Oyhana. I saved a mandala coloring page from the internet and sized it for an ATC. I then hand colored it using Berol Prismacolor pencils:
This was a Dungeons & Dragons themed card I made for Corduroy Cat. I used packing tape to ghost the image of a frame from the infamous "Dark Dungeons" Jack Chick Gospel tract. I then painted the tape with alcohol inks. I used a spare D&D quick start playing guide to cut out the d20 and other images. The Kobold Zombie came from one of my many D&D cards:
This is one I made for my art journal. I used alcohol inks and a black stamp ink pad for the background. Then I glued a picture from my "Architecture" ATC paper pad:
This one is a Knitting Themed ATC I made for spookygrrrly. I clipped a piece from a knitting pattern I found in one of my magazines. I also clipped a part from a Clover Knit Lite knitting needle ad and a yarn ad. I then knit a tiny swatch out of Noro Kureyon Sock and used 1/18" brads to fasten it to the card:
The following card is NSFW
! It is a June Palmer themed ATC I made for raeraethejetplane. June Palmer was a nude model in the 1960s. I found a beautiful B&W photo of her online and used that. I used silver gel pen and rhinestone stickers to create the "frame". I used a thin, shiny, iridescent scrapbook paper and cut out random triangles to make the background. I love this card, so I wanted to include it in my post to change your image viewing settings please click here
