Twelve favorite prior ATCs

I am doing a round up of my favorite hand-drawn and hand-painted artist trading cards. The top two were finished this month and have not been traded yet. Everything else has been mailed off to new homes long ago.

I try to aim for a good weight on each card. Anything not on a Strathmore illustration board ATC blank is mounted on a heavier core. I hate leaving the backs blank, so the backs have various decorative papers and title cards glued on.

    Wow, Shellie. These are lovely! You have a real way with the watercolors.

    I think my favorite is the beta; but I like them all.
