Artist trading cards: miniature works of art

Artist Trading Cards or ATCs is the latest new concept introduced to Stairway children by Pascal Annoual, an art therapist from Canada and her daughter, JuliAna, 18. 

Simple to make and highly addictive, these small original works of art can be swapped like baseball cards and are never for sale.  Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) have just one simple rule: they must measure 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches, and be flat enough to slide into a standard trading card sleeve.  Media, materials, and techniques are totally up to the individual artist, so cards can be rubber stamped, painted, collaged, screen-printed, or created by any method imaginable.
