This three card series of Artist Trading Cards (ATC’s) was made for a swap I signed up for hosted by an artist in Great Britain. Since these cards are so small, it’s sometimes hard to find the image you want in a size that is proportionate for the small canvas (2.5 by 3.5 inches). I have found some wonderful sites on the Internet where there are coloring pages available for download, free for personal use. I can resize an image to the size I need, print it on card stock, paint it, and cut it out. For this series, I used fairies drawn by artist Phee McFaddell and paired them with other stamped images and a variety of backgrounds and embellishments. Materials are for the entire series; “How to’s” are for the individual cards. See close-ups of each card (uploaded separately).
