ATC for Inspire Me Thursday




















I've only recently discovered ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), and I love them!

For those who are new to ATCs, the only rules are that:

1) Cards must measure 2.5in x 3.5in
2) Cards mustn't be sold, only exchanged

You can use any medium, any materials, so anything goes! And the theme for this week's Inspire Me Thursday is to make one. I made this one using old newspaper, pastels, gel pens and beads.

I thoroughly enjoyed it so I may well make this my challenge for next month...watch this space!
