7-for-7 ATC Swap
Skill: 2 budding
Postmarked by: 7/25/2011
Hostess: Cathy Calamas
Backgrounds!! The starting point for every ATC and the hardest part for me. One of my favorite "extras" when I get a swap in the mail is a piece of someone's background art. Often it's, "how in the world did they do that??" With that in mind, I am hosting a Background ATC swap.
Create one background, on a 8.5 x 11" sheet of cardstock (watercolor paper,bristol board, etc.) using your tried and true methods, happy accidents, or something new you've just learned. You will be cutting this one sheet into ATC's.
Please include 7 index card size "instruction" sheets with your ATC's, with either a link to a site where you learned the technique or your own written instructions. Then we can all learn from each other and share the fun.
Follow the method in the link below for cutting your paper into 10 ATC's. You will have 7 to swap and 3 for yourself.
There is also a file with the link in the Files/techniques folder on the PT home site:
You will find instructions for some techniques there also - in case you need some inspiration.
