ABC Swap - Artist Trading Cards

The next ATC swap I was asked to join was a daunting 26 card full alphabet swap.  Now, I've stated before that working small just isn't my thing.  But these ATCs are a way for me to use new techniques, break through size barriers and just have some fun.  Plus it is a fantastic excuse to let my Art Supply Addiction run rampant!

These are the cards I made:

Again, I used a variety of media.  Stamps by Tim Holtz, Dylusions, Recollections, and Inkadinkado.  Distress Inks, Ranger Archival Inks, Studio G inks, and StazOn inks, some Vintage Stickers by Tim Holtz Idea-Ology, various scrapbook papers, and these fabulous chipboard letters I found by K&Company.

It really wasn't easy figuring out what to do for some of the letters (such as Q, V, X, Y, and Z!) so I just had to make it up as I went along.  I absolutely did go out searching for particular stamps.  I bought a whole jar stamp set just for J and bought one of Tim Holtz's Halloween sets for the skeleton on X.  I needed an X-Ray!

This card set really pushed my limits but I would definitely be willing to do another swap!

See y'all next time.  Happy Arting!
