Artist's Trading Cards

This is my DT Card for The Book Month Challenge at Outlawz.  It is inspired by Maya Anegelou's "I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings!  It is also my entry at Unstampabelles.  It is nice to see more sites that don't require stamping. So glad I found these ladies!  When you enter their challenges, just remember they are on Australian time!

 I really enjoy making these little cards!  I hope to create some ATCs using some of my old metal stencils, I think I might be able to produce a pretty cool image.  I purchased a set of Artist Cards, and I used one of  those for my bird cage ATC.  I put the cards away and could not find them today, but I realized I had a ton of medium weight chipboard so I used that for the next two ATCs.  For those of you not familiar with Artists Trading Cards, they are an off shoot of Artists Cards which many famous artist use to make and sell for extroadinary amounts of money.  Artist Trading Cards are not intended to be sold.  The only rule is that the card must be 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".  You can paint them, etch, stencil, whatever you desire.  Hope you enjoy looking!  C-YA!

These ATCs were created for the Creative Freebies Challenge at The Outlawz.  The digis were created by my Teammies, Sandi Huggett (Angel) and Anne E. Fenton (Cupcakes).  This week Anne and Sandi were very generous and gave us four wonderful Digis for our creations.  I was only able to complete projects using these two.  If you are just starting to use digital images/stamps, the CFC Challenge at The Outlawz might be a good place for you to start.  Twice a month, you will receive two-four free digis and it is only necessary to use one in a project in order to get the next set of free images.
