I don't have many trading cards, and the few I have have been entirely hand drawn.  No collage, no neat doodads added.  I feel kind  of boring.  I made these for a friend.  Input?

I like them. I like the colors you picked, I can't draw so I like cards that are drawn well.   Smiley

They are cute. I like the little bathing fairy best, because of it's humor. And I love how you drew her little foot ! You should go on with that type of composition : simple but it tells a story.

Thank you panthermoon, I used watercolor pencils, I enjoyed using them so much I just bought a bunch more. 

Thank you Weddy_in_Paris, I had so much fun drawing the fairies I will probably do more.

I just got so intimidated looking at all the trading cards everyone else has made.  I love the vintage looking collages, and some of the cards are just hard to believe that they are so tiny because they are so detailed.  Cheesy

I love them.  I see nothing wrong with them at all.  They are really pretty.

Thank you lylacfey.  Maybe I don't need dodads after all.  Thank all of you for looking and answering.  If I ask my husband what he thinks of something, he kind of glances, and says "yeah that's really nice" and either he likes just about everything I do, or he doesn't want to tell me what he thinks, or as I suspect, just has no real opinion one way or another. It helps to hear from other people.

These are all lovely cards! I actually belong to another ATC group, along with many members here also, that actually prefers the handdrawn and painted cards over the "cut picture" cards- so believe me- they are beautiful and creative.

OMW, if I could draw like that I'd fill a trash barrell with all my doo-dads and be thrilled to do it.

Like Patti mentioned, there are some boards out there that ONLY allow handrawn.

You've got loads of talent hon.
(btw, I have a side primitive business and my husband has only commented on 1 thing of the prolly 300 things I've made.  Your hubs, like mine, might just not have an opinion.)
