Very First ATC

I have made my very first ATC, artist trading card, and this is something I could really get into.  I have really enjoyed Singtatters and all the superb cards she makes, so I did a bunch research  on all the wonderful cards.  I figure this would be such a fun way for me to always create, yet  be able to have small pieces to trade with friends . 

I am always giving pieces away, yet not everyone wants huge pieces all the time, and I can't really afford to give big pieces away with some of the materials that go into making them.

For my first ones, I used hand drawn, pen and ink,  and made 
them simple, and did New Mexico since that is where I currently live.
 I plan on  doing many mediums, and putting Tatting on them
and having a lot of fun with them.  
but also, not jumping full head into them, I still have a lot of 
projects to finish first.

So without further a-due,  here are my very first, 
Hope you like these, :) they were fun to make :)

  1. I love New Mexico and these are perfect! Lovely work, Bri!
    Fox : )

  2. I've been looking at these for quite awhile too although I'm not sure how I would use them. I think more as a creative business card, a sample of my work. I wouldn't trade them just for the purpose of accumulating a collection, or at least I don't think I would. These are very nice. Do you have something on the back too?

  3. Very cool! I have also admired Singtatter's ATCs, and I did research. That's about as far as I got. Some day...

  4. on the back I put my name, the name of the card, then the number of the set, like 1 of 1, 1 of 2, 1 of 3, what the medium is, hand drawn, pen and ink, and my email address.

    when I was doing the research on them that is what several of the sites said should be put on the backs, oh, and the date created.

    I am not sure if I am going to trade them or just give some of them to my friends, which is what I usually do with most of my work, lol.

    I already know who is getting one of these, and I am going to make 3 more of these, just like this, but out of fabric and try. to put some tatting for the different elements. so we will see how that works out, like I said, I have a lot of wips already, lol

    I have to finish my blouse, and my hanky for Paula first, lol

  5. Very nicely done! Red or green?

  6. oh, I missed something, red or green what, lol

  7. Lovely...these look like a lot of fun to make...might be something I'll have to try...know what you mean about the WIPs though!!!

  8. I love this idea - your cards look great. I made hundreds of trading cards using rubber stamps when I was a Stampin' Up! demonstrator - but I had hundreds of fellow stampers at conventions to trade with.

    I would probably have fun making these now, but with no one to trade with, I'd end up putting them away and finding them again when I'm on a cleaning roll!

  9. Hey, your first ATC's turned out great! I've done a few with tatting and they're great fun to make and swap.

  10. Lovely ATCs. Hmmm, I really like that acronym - wips. It sounds much better than UFOs (unfinished objects). From now on I shall have WIPS. Some of them just may be 'in progress' for a loooong time.

  11. Lovely ATC's I love the colour and your image, well done I am sure anyone will enjoy them as much as the tatting

  12. lol Eliz, I have a lot of wips, lol, some are in progress for a very long time, and I go back and back and back to them, and just do a little tiny bit at a time, haha, but that is alright :D eventually they will no longer be wips and be finished projects :)

  13. Thank you all for your wonderful comments about the ATC's, I have made another one that is going to a friend and I will get it posted soon :) I do appreciate all the support, ty vm :)
