I've known about ATCs for a few years now, but I never got around to making any...till now.  With Craftster comes many new opportunities, including ATC swaps, an event that my social network is sorely lacking.  I figured I'd share a few here, see what people think, cause if there is any place in the world where my art might be appreciated, it'd be Craftster  Smiley

(sorry for the fuzziness, a slight headcold is wreaking havoc on my balance and coordination - makes my hands all shaky)

My favorites, thus far:



Here's a closeup of the center one (my favorite of the three) :



They look good separate, but they're meant to go together...here's what they look like connected:



All of the colors are rather oversaturated - my camera can't handle them  Roll Eyes
They look a lot cleaner and more distinct in real life.

So whaddya think?
Would they be appreciated in a swap?

*EDIT*
these 3, plus 11 other cards now posted here

Fine by me, poo head (I like your name).

I have visions of painting out huge pictures, cutting them into ATCs, then shipping a different piece off to people all over the world...makes me feel part of some weird treasure hunt...if you wanted a complete picture, you'd have to swap continually to finish the puzzle.

But, then again, I'm a nerd...that idea might drive others bonkers...

atc- artist trading card check this out http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=53197.0

the idea of sending them to different people to swap amongst (sp?) themselves or whatever sounds way too complicated for me, but i tend to  be slow when it comes to other people's ideas, just like many are confused by mine. i think it's an artist thing... not that i'm an artist, but ya know

Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.

And like so many other crafts, I'm finding ATCs rather addictive...who needs to eat or sleep when you can make pretty stuff  Wink

Your ATCs are some of the best I've seen on the net so far!  I love how these connect to make one image.  I also love the vibrant colors.  Please keep making them!   

PS- I left you a comment on your blog!

I just started playing around with ATCs yesterday.  I love them, but haven't come up with a cohesive theme for a "series" of them, like you have here.  They're gorgeous and I really like that they look great unconnected and connected.  Good job!!

I painted the backgrounds with leftover fiber-reactive dye (the stuff that's used for tie-dye).  It makes insanely gorgeous colors, but you have to be careful with it once it's dry...it's harmful to your lungs.
