Last summer I discovered Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) through Elizabeth's celebration of the 2nd anniversary of her weekly link party at her blog Altered Book Lover. I've had so much fun with this, playing with different ways of making them as the mood strikes, trying to just do them quickly without fretting over them. My first coffee-themed ATC:

The card at the top of the post is a cup and saucer seen from above. It was my first attempt at a cup drawn freehand with watercolors. The background is sketched in with Prismacolor colored pencil, and the words were found in passing. I made it last August.

The T Tuesday gatherings are weekly and always welcome newcomers who want to share a beverage. Please join us.
