BEATING HEARTS: Make an ATC with Smudgy Antics!

fortnight has passed and it is time for another inky challenge with Smudgy Antics.

The design team challenges you to make an ATC. 
Easy as can be, right?   For those that may not know, ATC stands for artist trading cards.  ATCs are 2.5″ x 3.5″ works of art that are intended for trade.  ATCs are kind of like personalized business cards as the front has the handmade art and the backside contains the artist’s contact information.
You can search the net and find tons of information and examples of ATCs.

There is a bit of a twist with the challenge this fortnight.  The ATC you create MUST incorporate a stamped image (real or digi) and it must follow the theme of


You have two weeks to add your creation to Mr. Linky.  Also, if you would like to trade your ATC with another artist, please leave a comment stating such in the comment section of this post.  Trading is not required, but since that is the purpose of ATCs we thought we would give everyone the opportunity to trade.

Here is my DT ATC:
I have used “I Give You my Heart” and “Devil Heart” from Smeared Ink. (Follow the link to get yours.) I used a combo of PSE, Copics, and Prismacolor pencils to color with. The Q came from my label maker. The metal crown she is waring is from Tim Holtz. The BG is from a “Collage” sheet I bought during 31 days, but never used it, and now I don’t remember the company it came from?
I am looking forward to seeing your ATCs!! And don’t forget if you would like to trade with any of DTs leave a comment on the Smudgy Antics challenge blog!
Also make sure you follow this link to Smudgy Antics so you can see the WONDERFUL ATCs the other DTs made!!
Thank you for stopping in to take a look at my ATC, Thank you for your comments, and as always Stay Crafty my Friends!
