Sorry I'm late Ladies! okay, the ATC challenge has changed a little bit thanks to jimmyrose :(( We are now going to exchange our ATC's!

Firstly, what is an ATC if you do not know already. ATC stands for Artist Trading Card and are miniature works of art you can keep for yourself or trade with your friends. ATC's are usually a standard playing card size of 2.5in x 3.5 in.

here is an ATC card I got from a friend back in 2006, it shows who created it and when and how many in the collection. In digital form we would just name our file/atc card
http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/oo330/louceecreations/advertising/nondigitalcards.jpg

RULES : if you would like to play and join in on the exchange, the NEW rules are you must only use digital products from the Studio store and you will need to email me at louceecreations@gmail.com with your ATC card in png and at 300 dpi for swapping purposes. When uploading to the gallery please ensure they are only 72 dpi and in jpg form.

I will pm everyone who plays along a link to all cards at the end of the month.
*PLEASE NOTE* if you want to play, but not join in the exchange, then feel free to use whatever you want for this challenge.

Please download your template here (http://www.mediafire.com/view/?sg599gc8u2c6dva), this one is already at 300dpi

This months theme is going to be Halloween. You may use any halloween/fall style kit you already have from the designers at the Studio (providing they are S4H okay) or please use anything from our fabulous Halloween coordinated collection (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=245_406) we have at the Studio. All parts are only a $1 each at the moment.
please post your 72dpi image in our gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g657-atc-artist-trading-card-challenge.html) and then let me know in this thread.

Here's mine ready for the ATC swap! I used Snickerdoodles gorgeous Halloween Sweet Treat (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=245_406&products_id=15086) and my Charming Halloween (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=245_406&products_id=15142)for this card.http://i388.photobucket.com/albums/oo330/louceecreations/trickortreat-lcc.jpg

Sounds like fun, though not trading, as my printer isn't working right now, until my husband comes home to fix it.

This is an example of one of my favorite things to do in the "digi" world, taking pieces from several different sources and combining them into something different. Here I took pieces from about 4 different witches to make my I-Phone using witch.

Me2: My husband cut it one time & I told him, never to do it again.
I would of been a lot faster, however I was doing the border challenge 1st: which is one of my favorite challenges, besides Scrap Lift & Template Challenges. I had a friend that did ATC challenges long ago, @ a different forum, so I thought I'd pop in & do this one.


Your welcome, and thank you Cyndi for jumping in with the answer :0)

I just thought I'd help out if I could, while I was available: I know not everyone is on the same time frame as us. Happy to help.

It seemed a fun idea to try scrapping in a different size, but I am not really interested in joining in the exchange. Although I am happy to email the full size if any one wants it. I made mine using the Halloween Collection contributions by Mad Genius Designs, hugs Crystal xx

Here is mine. I used BooLand Designs kit called "Darknight". I blended three papers for the background, changing the properties and opacity and adding elements. The swirl came from Aimeeh's "Je T'Aime" and the word spooky uses Deli Scrap's "Spider Alpha." The font for the rest of the words is called "Old Dreadful # 7." This was fun, so glad it is back.

Wonderful cards everyone... I was thinking will I or will I not since some of the cards are Halloween but I've decided to go for it as I found this scary thing at a Shopping Mall - he was actually "For Sale" so I took a photo of him & he didn't do anything - so I tried again as a little boy was putting his hand in his pouch trying to make him move or something - I didn't know what he did & so I tried again.... :O He started rambling, flashed his eyes & moved... boy did I jump :grrr:

So here he is on my card ready for you all....
