ATC - little canvas of art

I've been working on Artist Trading Cards (ATC) lately and wanted to post a couple.  To the uninitiated, an ATC is a miniature piece of art created and traded or swapped, but never sold.   This card is 2 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches or 63 mm by 89 mm and can fit in standard card collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.  I pick up my sheet protectors at a Sports Memorabilia store.   You can find more information here.    

                                    

Even on a small canvas this size, you can still use die-cuts or dry embossing folders in your work.  I have traded the first one and working on more, so cannot really trade for a week or so.  Hope you enjoyed seeing these.   Be sure to catch up with the Die Cut Divas blog.  Big things are happening in February!
