This is my first ATC (Artist Trading Card) Swap. It's where you make 9 of the same thing, mail it to the host of the swap, then wait for your 8 to come in the mail. The size is only 2.5 x 3.5 inches and it was really challenging for me to come up with something in that small space. Hopefully I've done it some justice :). The theme was "Baby". I haven't mailed them out yet - need to get a padded envelope - but am excited to see what everyone else came up with.
I kept it relatively simple. I decided to make one geared more towards a boy, since sometimes I lean more to the pink side when I think baby. I also wanted to play with my new copic markers - hee hee. I went to town blending and seeing how the colorless blender works- I think it's kinda cool, it's like those markers when you were a kid where they changed colors!
Well here it is:The colors are a little darker in the picture than in real life - it's really overall soft & pastel-y. The hardest part was coloring and cutting out the elephant :). And just as a preemptive apology, some of them are missing tails... I had some unintentional amputations occur.
Here's a close-up to show the dimension.
Here they are all together ready to go!
