Drink It Up ATC Swap-AMR

Between the covers and ATC's themselves, I put in over 14 hours on these.
After receiving them all, it was worth every second to have such beautiful works of art in hand. Makes me even think I might be able to do them again...
Here was my original sketch with my idea. These are 2.5 x 3.5 inch artistic trading cards, not to be sold, stolen, or sideswiped!

These are the covers. I created, from scratch, an envelope to store them in.
The first step was cutting out the sand colored paper. I sloughed them with some crystal stickles and then poured craft sand on top. Letting them to dry over night, I then inked them yellow and brown. I placed them on the blue bazill background.
I spent hours cutting out palm trees and inking brown "notches", palm fronds and inking green, coconuts and inking brown, straws, white overlay, limes, hammocks, toothpicks, and squares to write my favorite drink on.


I sliced each of the hammocks so the coconut would fit down in snugly and easily be able to be pulled out to reveal the drink on the back!






So much fun...and now to reward you for being so patient to look and read about mine!
Feast your eyes on this yumminess!
Each front and then back go together!



































Here they all are!

WOW! Those are really cool. I'm a "Newbie" when it comes to ATC's, do you "scrap" them after you receive them? Just curious. I appreciate the time that goes into all cards and such!
