Pint size art

I've been sort of fascinated with all the ATC's that I see all over the internet. ATC stands for artist trading card.  They are a 2.5" x 3.5" little piece of artwork.

I've read that many people use playing cards as the base for their ATC's. Since I had an old deck of cards that wasn't being used I gave it a try.


The back of the card generally gives information such as title, card number and date, artists name and any other relevant information. One blog I visited the woman used hers as random act of kindness cards. The fronts all had motivational quotes and the back explained that it was a Random act of kindness and it belonged to whoever found it. She would then leave them in various places for people to find and keep.

What's on the back of mine? Right now nothing. It still looks like a playing card. The pretty side is done though.

Happy First day of spring everyone.

  11. Hello Ann, Your card is lovely and what a lovely thing this lady is doing with her's . . . I've always wanted to try making them and doing a swap with other interested artists, but these little acts of kindness are so sweet. Are you going to try doing this too?
    Have a lovely weekend.

    I used to make ATCs. So much fun...because you get (relatively) instant gratification!
