My Ellephatastic Mid Month Tutorial.

Oh My Goodness Boy was I worried about this.  Helen aasked me ages ago to do the March Tutorial on Ellephatastic and I thought Great!! As time has gone by though Ive got very nervous!!! 
So here we go with My tutorial on ATCS. Hope you all like it.  

If you haven't you still have time to enter the main challenge HERE!
Our Theme is Cute with a Butterfly

So I will tell you a wee bit about what ATCs are and show you how to make one.

ATCs are Artist Trading Cards. They are cards the same size as a playing card. So 3.5" by 2.5" (9cm by6.5 cm)
The idea is to create something you would swap with other crafty friends. 
 ATCs are not sold just swapped. 








So to begin with get your blank ATCs together. 










Choose which Images you would like to use. For my 4 I decided on 
Roger Pilot,
Baby Roger,
Joey the Rabbit 
and 
Barney the Dog


Collect together your crafting tools and papers you require. 

Decide on what you want to do with your ATC and get it all prepared for sticking together. 

Finished Coloured image.

I use a stamp to write the information about my ATC on the back. It helps you to remember when you have made your ATC and for what. Also write the back before you stick things on the front as its easier.
My Finished 4.
Hope you like them. Pop over to the Main Challenge Blog to see the ones the Other Design Team Have made too.
Remember too you can get the images I played with at The Ellephantastic Store.

I would like to enter my ATCs into The Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge too as their theme is Anything but a Card.
