Last month, I joined Craftster's ongoing Artist Trading Card (ATC) swap and have been having fun making and receiving ATCs ever since Smiley. Everyone has such inspiring themes to share - it's proving to be great motivation to make messes in my craft room! These are the first couple cards I've made based on my partner's themes of Bill Murray and Foxes.

If you're an uber-fan, you may recognize this bizarre quote from one of Bill Murray's movies. Any guesses?? Spoiler below Smiley.


If you guessed What About Bob? you are officially an uber-fan of Bill Murray!!

I think What About Bob? is one of the most hilarious movies of all time and the dinner scene absolutely kills me, this quote in particular. I'm giggling just typing the words! It's so ridiculous! I mean, of course it's hand-shucked! HA! I thought it would be a fun way represent the Bill Murray theme.

For the Fox theme, I found a picture of a really cool black line tattoo by Christian Lanouette on Pinterest and drew a similar design on the card. I then filled it in with watercolors to pump up the vibrancy.



Both cards are done on hot-press watercolor paper.

I'm planning to continue to play in the ATC swap. I feel so much better when I'm making things and this is an easy swap to keep my artsy-fartsy side motivated. Plus, I'm getting to start my own collection of ATCs from other crafters!

Both are wonderfully done, but I love, love, love the fox one.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

You make the best ATCs, did you know? They could be little cards at a boutique. Thanks for sharing them, and I agree, the ATC Swap is a great low-stress way to be creative.
