So I signed up for an ATC swap, and then I decided I should learn how to make them before sending them out.  I don't want to disappoint anyone.  Paper crafting isn't really my thing... I usually make dolls.

Anyway, these ATC's have a theme; they are a set of 3.  (I don't know how big sets should be.)  The theme is the poem "Goblin Market" by Christina Rossetti. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goblin_Market  I drew the goblins and colored them with primsacolor markers.  The background is from a lovely watercolor painting of ghost orchids by Kate Osborne.  http://www.kateosborneart.com/

Are these ATC's missing something?  I used a gluestick, and then sat on each one - don't laugh, I read that makes it stick better - but should I finish them in some way?  If you were in a swap with me, would you totally hate them?

Wow!  I think they are awesome and would be thrilled to receive one in a swap.  I don't think they are missing anything at all.

Ok, thanks so much!  That makes me feel better.  Should I finish them in some way?  I read about future floor wax and mod podge, but I would prefer that they not be shiny.

All I do for mine is spray on some clear acrylic spray.  It isn't shiny at all.

I think they're gorgeous! I would love to get one of them, they're adorable, so don't worry. If you are still worried something's missing, though, you could try to darken the edges a bit.
