I love them....except for the clown one.  I am horribly afraid of clowns.  Now I will have bad pregnancy/benadryl induced dreams about clowns.  Which is to say, the dreams I normally have. 

I love the rest of them, though.

Great ATC's. I am a recent devotee to this atrt form myself and I know how addictive they become. Due to their size (small) they are so easy to complete quickly. A great craft for those of us with little time. I belong to another group on Yahoo that does themed swaps each month. I have been having so much fun I already have May's done and June's in the works already.
   I especially like the sense I get of your quirky sense of humor. Keep laughing and let the art flow!!!!!

Not at all a stupid question. ATC = Artist Trading Card

they are 2.5 " x 3.5 " and you swap them with other artists. here there's loads more info on them here: http://www.cedarseed.com/air/atc.html

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I love these!!  ATC's are so cool!!  I checked out the site you recommended and that is like a "mini class" on ATC's.  Thanks.  I noticed on this site it said ATC's are not meant to be sold, only traded.  I have seen some beautiful ones on ebay!! I love clowns btw and have never understood why people "fear" them although I know alot of people who do!!  Thanks for sharing!!!!!!!!!!!

{snip} I noticed on this site it said ATC's are not meant to be sold, only traded.  I have seen some beautiful ones on ebay!! {snip}

Those that are sold are classified as ACEOs - Artist Card Editions and Originals. Similar idea, but for profit. I have a coupld of links on my website, on the ATC page, that explains ACEOs Smiley

Hi nix kisses!

Love your cards - I'm still getting myself organized to try ATC's. When I do I'll post a few.

You asked about the photographer of the first one. I'm not positive, but my first thought was Cecil Beaton. He did work like that for fashion magazines and such. Maybe a Google on him?
