Artist Trading Cards were a bit intimidating to me at first but now I am really loving them. The work surface is a small 3 1/2 X 2 1/2... that's it! You have to make it all fit and tell a story that fits in your hand. These little frosties are colored with watercolor pencils. Backround paper is stamped with versamark pad. The skittles are colored with alcohol ink and I finally got to use the little sparkly ribbon stuff Kathrin sent me! It is perfect for these little guys.
