Lately, I've been using cardboard packaging for my bases, like from cracker boxes, soda can boxes, cereal boxes ...  I've even been doing watercolors directly onto the plain cardboard side.  I kinda like the look of it!  I also use thick watercolor paper, and then it doesn't require anything behind it.

I think this would be fun but I have never made an ATC or ever collected them.  What do you do with them?

I also use recycled cardboard or recycled cards that I receive. I also use card stock that I cut out.

I've been using the Tim Holtz distress inks and embossing powders on my cards.  My sister got me into using copic markers as well. However, I just can't make my colors turn out like hers though.

I bought some baseball card sleeves and put them in a three ring binder. I like to turn through the pages and look at all my cards.I even decorated the binder. When I first started I thought the same thing (what do you do with them) but now I'm hooked!!

Making them is almost my own type of therapy- in a way! Cool

You should give it a try!!!!
