Tiddly Inks Challenge 24 - Create an Artist Trading Card & Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Hello art lovers...this week is your week. :) We are creating ATC cards (some call them ACEOs). These little works of art are 2.5 x 3.5 inches and soooo cute. :)

You have until next Monday night at 10 PM CST to link your ATC below....Can't wait to see them. :)

Well I've never done an ATC before so was a little uncertain but happy to accept the challenge.
My first step was to cut a piece of scrap card to 2.5x3.5 inches so I could get the idea of scale and how well the idea in my head would translate to this tiny piece of card.
I chose one of my all time favourite tiddly inks, Donna., as I wanted my image to be "outside of the box" so to speak.

Donna is coloured in with trusty promarkers.  I've covered the umbrella, her wellies and the puddle in anitas gloss to give the shiny wet look.  I also used the gloss on the three card candies on the bottom right.
The camera has made her pink wellies and pink section of her brolly look orange but just so you know its the same pink as the card candy.

I'm really pleased with how my ATC came out and I will be giving her to my hubby's Gran to use as a bookmark as she is an avid reader.

Please pop by the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog to check out everyone else's amazing entries to the the challenge.

Hazel, this is adorable. Took me a while to wrap my mind around working on something so small. Bookmark is a perfect use for it.
