Mermaid ATC's

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Thursday, March 17, 2011
So, my Mom has been making ATC's lately (Artist Trading Cards) and has kinda gotten me into making them too, although, I have a lot of catching up to do!!  She's made so many by now and I think I've done... 8?  Hahaha!  I guess since I got her into cardmaking and scrapbooking to begin with, it's only fair that she get me into something new, too, right?

Well, she and I are looking forward to going to the Heirloom Rubber Stamp Expo in Portland, Oregon next weekend and they have an ATC contest and swap!  This year's contest theme is Mystical Mermaids, so I decided to make up a set of ATC's to enter into the contest - wish me luck!!  I am also making a few ATC's to take with me to swap, but I don't know how many I'll end up having.. it's still such a small canvas for me to get used to working on!

Here are my Mystical Mermaids - using the Mermaid digi from Karen's Doodles

I kept them very similar, to make them more of a set, but of course, not identical.  I also needed them to reflect my style of "art", so I kept them simple, but they had to have shimmer, glitter, sparkle and pearls!  I really like how they turned out!

Some ATC's are wild, some are simple... some are odd, some are cute... some are colorful, some are monochromatic... it all depends on the artist that creates them and their style of art.  I think these show off my style pretty well.  Simple, colorful, cute and sparkley!

I hope you like them and I hope they do well in the contest next weekend!  Anyone else going to the show in Portland?  I'd love to swap with you!  :)

I'd love to enter these into the challenge at Digital Tuesday Challenges - It's a Magical World
