I just started making ATCs, and I would love some feedback!  Here are my first few.

Don't Turn Your Back!
This is actually my first, and I think it's my favorite.  I originally stamped the cardstock (recycled from an old calendar) with the word "believe", but it rubbed off everyone bu on the sky, leaving the impression that the word is disappearing behind the hill I liked it, so I kept going!

I embroidered this bicycle onto watercolor paper ages ago, and just came across it while looking for material to make ATCs.  I decided to just rip the edges and paste it onto cardstock to make a card.

Green Owl
This looks much better in person -- I don't know why my camera hated me today.  I used the packing tape transfer method for the owl and put him onto a piece of ribbon from one of my birthday presents.

Heaven on Earth
I'm not normally a big angel person, so I don't quite know where this came from.  It just sort of came together!  Everything here is recycled -- the cardstock comes from an old calendar and the text and angel come from a catalog I've been saving for collage.  Ignore the piece of embroidery floss coming off the bottom -- I haven't put a back on it yet, which will pin the floss in place.

Comments and criticism welcome -- I want to get better at this!  I would love to start trading soon, so if anybody is interested in collecting crappy first attempts the early work of new ATC artists ( Wink) feel free to PM me!
