Forever on your heart...




Paw prints that is ;) Today's challenge over at the TSG blog is to make an ATC or Artist Trading Card. These cards are 3.5" x 2.5" and they are decorated and ready to be traded to be assembled on a card. Easy right? I thought so! And did you know that there is a prize involved for participating in the TSG69 challenge?

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create an ARTIST TRADING CARD (ATC), then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of the TSG69 challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (August 30th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store, so what are you waiting for? Oh right...the rest of my post of course ;)

I brought out my Puppy Love set because the images are not only adorable, but also the perfect size for this type of card. The little guy has been water coloured, the grass was done with prisma pencils and gamsol and the edges were sponged with baja and antique linen inks.

So now, because I'm a sweetheart and wouldn't leave a girl hanging with wondering what I did with my super cute ATC card (which was the first one I ever made) - here is what my finished card looks like:



I ended up mixing up a bunch of scraps that I had, and created a kind of patch work background. I only had one other paper that went with the green 3 bugs DP, so I had to improvise and try to get my light pink paper to blend in without seeming too out of place ;)

Thanks for coming by today and stay tuned for my There She Goes sneak peeks coming a little later this week :D
