ATC , What is it??

ATC is an abbreviation for Artist Trading Cards.  There are so many creative ATC all over the internet.  To me they are tiny versions of Art. 

Basically, an Artist Trading Card is on specific size.  That size is 3.5" x 2.5".  The card can be created vertical or horizontal...and any type of medium. (I chose to create my ATC using Photoshop after i colored the image)

Many of Sherri's Pocket Art Letter printables are the perfect size to create any ATC.

For this ATC, i chose to color up the image Hank's First Car and turn him into a png file and layer him on top of a background.  After that i added some embellishments to the car.  I added the racing flags and the title of the car. Then i added some text to the background to make a specific card theme.

Once i had my card created using Photoshop, i printed it off 3 more times so that i could make the image 3D. 

This is the final ATC created on Photoshop:

This is the card created with the added 3D image:  (2.5 x 3.5")
