Good Morning! Today's Whimsie Wednesday Challenge #53 is issued by Doodle-licious Diva, Alicia. She has challenged us to make an ATC, Artist Trading Card. This was a new technique for me. I had heard of ATC's but had never seriously tried to create one. I 'googled' ATC's to learn more about them; I specifically needed to know what size to make an ATC. I learned the size is 2.5" x 3.5".
Here are some links to sites about ATC's.

Here is my ATC. I chose Whimsie Doodles 'Dracula' from the Halloween Tag image set. Since Whimsie Doodles' images are digital I can manipulate, resize, and alter them. To create Dracula I simply cropped him from the tag. I printed him on Papertrey Ink white cardstock, colored him with Copic markers, and cut him out. He is adhered with 3-d adhesives so he stands out.
