The ABCs of an ATC Swap

As I wrote earlier, one of my groups is having a lot of fun trying out various background techniques and surface treatments on Artist Trading Cards, working our way through the alphabet a month at a time.

We're up to E now, but for A, B and C, I did a mini running theme of 'I Want to Go to Le Cirque." I'd been having repeated dreams about cirques and these Stampsmith stamps -- a sheet called "Balancing Act"--just spoke to me. Although I've posted some of these before, I thought I would show them as a group.

So: A is for "Acrobat on Acrylic Scraped Background"; B is for "Babs Balances on Blended Batik,"" and C is for "Canine Juggles on Cosmos Paper."

Though I've moved on from the theme, my heart still yearns for a good cirque.


  1. Autumn -- these are wonderful ATC's. They evoke such a feeling of "fun"!

  2. Loving your Stampsmith work, Autumn!! Hoping you'll join us for The Stampsmith Challenge on the 1st and the 15th of every month. We play for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Stampsmith store! We have a sketch challenge right now and there's still time to enter!
