Send in the Clowns...

If you've been following my blog, you probably have guessed that I am a huge fan of ATC swaps. I generally participate (time permitting) in at least 2 (minimum) a month and can and have done up to 4 a month!

For those who do not know what a ATC is, here is a quick overview.

Artist trading cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern trading cards or 2 12 by 3 12 inches (64 mm × 89 mm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.

Cards can be created from various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolour, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, paper cuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or fiber. Anything really!

They can only ever be traded or exchanged.
If sold, they are usually then referred to as art card editions and originals (ACEOs).

So here is one of my ATC for this month.
The theme: Circus.
Title: Send in the Clowns

I've been practising a lot of zentangle patterns and thought this would be a great opportunity to practise some more!

The clown is a free digital stamp which you can find here


How cute is he...

For more zentangle/doodling ideas check out my pinterest board - Zentangles/Doodling!

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Samantha, both the tag and the clown atc's are fantastic! You're so clever.

  2. oh, the clown's ATC's are so beautiful!!! My friend is mad about all kinds of Clowns, and I think he would be happy to get one of these cards.. Sam, can you swap one with me? Please, feel free to ask any theme, and I will make a personal ATC for you. What do you think about?
