    I just use plain cardstock cut to 2.5" x 3.5"

    I prefer to do this than use precut blanks as this way I can do a whole sheet of background, and then cut it up, choosing the nicest bits of background to use.

    (does that make any sense?)

    Has the trading thread moved yet? Lacey, there is one where you can do direct trades. If it isn't here yet, it will be in the old Inspiration forum.

    hi Lacey

    pop onto this thread:
    http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk/boards/...ad.php?t=84407

    announce that you have some ATCs to trade and refer people to your gallery

    if anyone wants to trade (and they WILL because them there ATCs are bliddy gorgeous, girl! I'd trade myself but have run out of ATCs and need to make some more) they will let you know, and you can pick one of theirs and swap addresses via PM

    I usually make my own (with brayered inks, or alcohol inks, or colour wash.... the possibilities are endless ), or you could stick patterned paper to card.

    If using playing cards how do you colour the background - ink or paint, Is it too smooth for it to stick?

    cheers

    not sure, as I haven't tried. I expect you would have to either glue paper on top, sand the shiny surface off, or paint gesso or primer on.

    if i use bazzil card is that going to be thick enough ? and does everyone make textured / layered / 3d cards or does anyone do digital type things ?? Sorry if that seems a wierd question its just i came up with some ideas but they would be done with some printing from my inkjet and then some watercolour painting and other art faff on top but no other layers that would add substance so im wondering if bazzil would be thick enough ?

    there are pretty much no rules as long as the finished card is 2.5" by 3.5" in size - and not toooooo lumpy (as most people store them in trading card wallet type things) - so yes, Bazill cardstock would be fine.

    Your ideas sound great - looking forward to seeing the end product

    ohhh we got our own thread ch4meleon.. i made my lotr atcs mainly digitally and (lo and behold) made a few of them 3d.. actually i quite like making "different looking" atcs and mine tend to be lumpy and 3d... the wonderful thing about atc is that anything goes.. no rules/regulations and they are so quick to do too due to their wonderful portable size...

    just go wild and be astonished by the results.
