An ATC I made using recycled
envelope paper and paint

~~~
Artist Trading Cards
(or ATCs)
are miniature works of art about the same size
as modern baseball card or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches.
Small enough to fit inside standard
card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.
The ATC movement developed out of the mail art
movement and has its origins in Switzerland.
Cards are produced in various media,
including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.),
wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.),
paper media (in the form of collage,
papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or cloth.
The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold
