Mid Month Inspiration and ATC Tutorial.

Hi and Welcome to the Middle of the Month with us on Ellephatastic.
If you haven't you still have time to enter the main challenge HERE!
Our Theme is Cute with a Butterfly

So this month its Me (Hazel) who has chosen the tutorial for you and its all about ATC's

So I will tell you a wee bit about what ATCs are and show you how to make one then let you see some great ones our Design Team have made. They are super.

ATCs are Artist Trading Cards. They are cards the same size as a playing card. So 3.5" by 2.5" (9cm by6.5 cm)
The idea is to create something you would swap with other crafty friends. 
 ATCs are not sold just swapped. 








So to begin with get your blank ATCs together. 










Choose which Images you would like to use. For my 4 I decided on 
Roger Pilot,
Baby Roger,
Joey the Rabbit 
and 
Barney the Dog


Collect together your crafting tools and papers you require. 

Decide on what you want to do with your ATC and get it all prepared for sticking together.

I use a stamp to write the information about my ATC on the back. It helps you to remember when you have made your ATC and for what. Also write the back before you stick things on the front as its easier.
My Finished 4.

Now here are the ATCs my Fellow Design Team Members have made. They are all great.
