An ATC to Share~

 Hello again, dear friends. Have you ever tried making an ATC (artist trading card)? Well, this is my first and I have to say it was a lot of fun and challenging to make something that small. The background of the card is torn pieces of ink stained paper, a stamping of the Eiffel tower and a couple french words.
 The piece of jewelry with the face of a clock on it was actually an earring but the big pink stone fell out and I lost it!! But this little clock face fit perfectly in the hole. I glued some coffee stained gauze underneath the earring, added some pink flowers and a gold metal stamping of some leaves and a few little seed beads.
 This is a piece of a brooch that I cut apart. The stones are a really pretty, iridescent pink,  and the leaves are mother-of-pearl.
This is only 2 1/1 inches by 3 1/2 inches. Not very big at all. 

Thank you for your wonderful comments and for visiting today!

What have you been up to? Any creating? Any Easter projects going? I need to get busy with that! 

I'm linking up with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday! Please go see this sweet lady and join in the fun by linking up something that you would like to share. She is also including green this weekend since Sunday is St. Patrick's Day

Have a wonderful weekend!

Irish Blessings,

I've made some ATCs...they're fun because you get a completed piece of art in a short period of time.

Your first ATC is absolutely amazing! Love all the beautiful details!

I have to laugh, at myself not you, I remember making my first ATC's too and I was so puzzled as to exactly what they were, I had to google the term! Small art can be so very wonderful and yours surely is!

Blessings from Cindy said...

You are soooo talented with whatever you decide to create, my friend. I love all the special details on the tiny canvas! I posted about the gift from you on my blog tonight. Thank you so much again & look forward to seeing you soon. It was wonderful to visit the other day!

your ATC is absolutely gorgeous, Sonya! are you going to trade it? i wouldn't be able to part with it if i were you!

Rebecca said...

Such a sweet little thing! I have not tried an ATC, maybe someday when I slow down a bit.
You make it tempting to try.
My thing right now is art journals, I love putting my favorite scriptures in them.
Have a wonderful SUnday

Charlene said...

I LOVE your ATC's. I have not started on this as I DON'T NEED another addiction! But, your's are darling. What do you plan on doing with them? Making a book to put them in?

Maureen said...

LOVE it! I have just started making these, but they are far less detailed than yours. Wowzers! Absolutely beautiful!
