So I'm new here and I just completed my first swap! I decided to try out making ATC cards (for the first time ever) and I like the results. All my cards are 'built' on regular playing cards that are either covered with paper or paint to transform them. I didn't really have any clue what I was going to make before hand so they are all kind of random. Each card took about 1 hour to make because they all used a lot of layers and a lot of glue or paint. I sent these cards out a couple days ago to my swap partner.
I thought I would give a little run-down of each and list their materials and techniques. The first card uses sandpaper to spell out texture, the second card is painted purple and used yarn to make the vines and a stencil to make the flower the writing is clipped from magazines, The third is all magazine clippings the fourth and fifth are paper backgrounds with chibi characters on them traced on clear paper, the sixth represents "lust" as part of a theme and uses magazine clippings and construction paper, the seventh is magazine and construction paper with handwriting, the eigth is a handwritten note a picture of a soldier and a bandaid, and the ninth is a hollowed out playing card covered in patterned paper and has a small peice of cardboard decrated by paint, pencil crayons, and construction paper to make a head in a jar. the head is "floating" in the hole by white thread and it reads "suspended-animation".
I hope you like them :)
