…real small, in fact. Smaller than minis, smaller than arches, smaller than tags…
This month, I challenge you to make ATC cards!!!! The beauty of these little guys is the lack of rules. In fact, the only rule is the size: 3-1/2 x 2-1/2. After that, anything goes. You can pretty much design them any way you want, from flat to fat, from monochrome to really colorful, from a picture or two to all sorts of clever techniques, well, you get the idea.
So, to the rules for this challenge in no particular order:
*ATCs must measure 3-1/2 x 2-1/2.
*While traditionally finished on both sides, with the back somewhat plain and containing information about the artist, I am asking only for the fronts.
*You may enter as often as you wish, because I am steal, er lifting Maggi's idea and will be awarding 2 prizes, one by majority vote and one by random pick.
*Please post all entries here and in the Gallery under SGC.
*I'll take all entries up through July 10.
I think that's it. Please let me know if I should be clarifying something.
A couple of examples that I came up with today before tuing this thread over to you:
Black & white images are from the Graphics Fairy. If you've never checked out her website, you should; lots of awesome images for free!!!!! http://graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/
Apologies for the backdrop; it's my much-beloved craft mat, back from Camp and more in need of a bath than usual.
And here are the entries; please give me a scream if I've overlooked any.

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."June 8, 2011 at 11:13 am #118347June 8, 2011 at 11:50 am #118346June 8, 2011 at 12:44 pm #118348

This is one of my favorite images of a poodle. I see a crooked riverboat gambler when I look at it. It is such a fun poodle image. The frame and glitter is from the Art-C technique kit. The image is from a graphics program that I have. Also used Pewter, green, gold and red Perfect Pearls for paint and black soot distress stickles.
