Challenge 45 Out of a Hat

Hello All. Hope you are feeling happy and healthy today and that 2013 is being good to you.

If you would like to be a part of our Friendship Quilt at the Hatters please look at the page here to find out more about it

This week at Out of a Hat Creations the challenge is to make a set of Three ATCs with any subject but each card must have red, green, white and black somewhere on them.

I thought it would be easy but I seemed to be stuck from the start for some reason. Do visit Janet and Sandra's blogs to see the beautiful work they have done for this challenge.

I digitally painted this face and used it on my set of ATCs by adding effects in Paint shop Pro.

Here she is pegged out to dry on the cactus cause I varnished the cards and it took ages for them to dry.

Here they are again all in a row.

I think when I see the word ATC my brain goes back to when an Artist Trading Card meant just that and they were an artist's own efforts printed onto little cards to hand out to show off their work. I must say that I am always happy working digitally and producing something unique even if it doesn't look as good as the terrific stamps we have all got used to now.

Love Chrissie xx
