This is an ATC I made for a Gypsy swap in the VIP Yahoo group. The image comes from the Alpha Stamps Cleo Collage sheet. I printed the image on Grafix Transfer film and applied the film over Ranger Crackle Paint to give it an aged cracking paint feel. Click here for the tutorial on this technique. The embellishments in the lower left corner are images of jewelry and gold coins.
I’ve had a question about what people put on the back of ATCs. Most people cover the back with decorative paper that coordinates with the front of the ATC. Usually there is also the artist’s name, contact information (like email address and or blog address), and title of the piece (if there is one). You can also include the date the piece was create and a series number if you make more than one of the same ATC (such as 1 of 4) with the first number being which card it is in the series and the second number being the total number of cards made.
