Obviously this is not a beginner doing the demonstrating; she leaves out basic details that beginners would need; HOWEVER this demonstration has inspired me as to what the possibilites are, once I become accomplished with the media. And at the end she gives a great tip for a website to go to. Beautiful work, great tips, just a little too fast and too much for a true beginner. Good job!

I love the way you colored it and I can't do stuff like that. I have NO talent and I want to be able to do it. Why not just take a card or a piece of something that you can make the right size and just put stickers on it or paint and that's it?

I know I am very lazy but that looks like alot of trouble and I'm a bad artist so it wouldn't come out right for me of course.
I Was Chosen To Be In "Gifted & Talented" So I Came Here.. I Couldnt Find Anything Useful.. Since Im A Newbie. So I Dont Have Many Materials. Thanks Anyways! Inspired Me Still. ;)

NyanSkittleSisters - Roblox & More! I encourage you to keep trying: the purpose of this tutorial is to give you some ideas to start with. Then you go to your local thrift/recycling store and gather materials, and you can also ask friends and family to gather things for you. Once you have some of your own items, come back and see if you can use her techniques to make your own atc. Use your imagination and play around with layers, colours and placement. Soon you will find an arrangement you like, and will be well on your artistic way!

this doesn't feel like a beginners tutorial to me!

Love the cards you made. :) Only concern - diluting acrylics can make the paint prone to peeling. The medium that carries the pigment seals by bonding to itself as the water in the paint dries. Most art instructors recommend not diluting more than 30% water, but that can be even less if you have a lower quality paint. (Water colors depend on the paper to hold the pigment, which is why most watercolor paper is so strongly textured).

Nice job, well done. TFS.
Great video and Iove your nails.

All they look amazing, but I don't think a beginner could have so many materials for make the ATCs. I love the way that you generate the transfer. Sorry if my english is not good.

New to ATCs. This was really helpful process to understand how to put them together. Lots of ideas. What pen are you using for the pen touch. Is it a paint pen. Or is it a specific pen. Tried to look up on amazon. Getting things like a stylus instead. Thanks. Will check out the atc site u mentioned.

So on the second card you made with the watercolor paint and jelly roll pen was done directly on the white chipboard?

Wow,  that's a lot of stuff on a 2x3 in card. I thought it was supposed to have a theme lol,  and I really couldn't tell what was on the card because it seemed like there was just too much "stuff" on it. You put a lot of work into it though,  so thank you for sharing :-)

What's the cutting tool used to cut the cards to size?
Zoila Rivera (5 years ago)
I am a newbie, I don't have any of those things. Thanks anyway

Is there another way to make rub on's besides using a printer? Like from magazines, books, newspapers, etc?

Mod podge :)

ATCs are to be traded, not sold. I would hazard that these artists are selling them as ACEOs. Off to check them out though. TFS!

Nope, they aren't just for girls. To see some ATC's by men, Google John Dyhouse or Rick Daddario + Artist Trading Cards. These guys actually earn income from their ATC's!
Eric Chang (6 years ago)
are they anly for girls becuase im a boy and they seem prety fun and cool
Elizabeth Ridley (6 years ago)
amazing I wish I could afford cool tools like what you are using.
Elizabeth Ridley (6 years ago)
