First Artist Trading Card

On my last visit to my local art store I purchased a pack of artist trading cards (ATC). The reason behind my purchase was two-fold, I wanted to try creating a small piece (the cards are only 2.5″ x 3.5″) and I wanted to try Strathmore’s 500 series Illustration board. The vellum surface has a nice texture for colored pencil and it is easy to lift off color without damaging the surface.

I am looking forward to creating more of these.
