"Travel" Artist Trading Cards

(Top Picture) These are the ATCs that I made for the "Travel" exchange. I started with a fabric base that was a map of Africa, with giraffes, elephants, and compasses. I then added imitation suade strips, fabric, handmade paper beads, film strips, and cowrie shells. The cards are edged with a variegated yarn. These were fun to do once I got started. The hardest part was figuring out the individual compostitions--I had to do each one different because of the way the base fabric cut up differently.

(Bottom Picture) These are the ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) that I recently received from my Fiber ATC group. Mine is the top row, 2nd from the left. Everyone did a fabulous job--I am so pleased with these cards. Each measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

Elizabeth, your cards are fabulous! Actually, the card I got from you is one of my favorites! I made the one with the lighthouse.
