This book is basically an ATC art gallery. There are instructions for each card, but some of them seem a little confusing (there are instances where you can't actually see where a certain stamp or element was placed... the photos of the cards are not large). There are also a few typos and grammatical errors that I noticed throughout the text.There's a nice section at the front on the basics of using rubber stamps, inks, masks, dry brushing, etc. And there's a huge list of websites at the back so you can find almost all of the stamps that were used in these cards.It's a fun book to look at. I just think some of the instructions could have been a little clearer. For inspiration, though, it's a nice book and should give even experienced ATC artists some new ideas.
One of my favorite things is rubber stamps, and the use of stamps in making all the various ATCs combines to produce a spectacular book. Also there is a lot of instruction,as well, in this book. I highly recommend this book for all rubber stampers along with other ATC-artist trading card-makers for delving into this new crafting craze.
If you have never done an ATC before and you like rubber stamping this is a book for you. Step by Step directions to layers, color and more will help your passion for ART on a small canvas. One ATC is never enough and there are 100s in this book to learn from or just admire.
Well if you want variety and style and to keep up with techniques then this is the book for you. I am astounded as to how many atc's are actually in this book and the levels of tallent required is incredible, this book gives you the choice to make simple or difficult and amazing atc's. If you need a good book then this should be top of the list.
Nice compilation of artist trading cards. Many of the same artists cards , wish the participants were more varied but altogether a good book.
This book is just what I was looking for. It has over 500 examples of rubber-stamped Artist Trading Cards. The ideas are endless. I've been referring to this book over and over again since I purchased it. You'll never run out of creative ideas for ATCs if you own this book. I have several books on the subject of creating ATCs, and this is the one I use the most.
This book is a visual feast! It offers ideas and techniques and is sure to stir your imagination.
This book really is beautiful to look at it. The images are surprising and inspiring. However, the text didn't make sense in many places--it was garbled or simply slapped into the book without editing. The directions for many cards seemed confusing, too, but perhaps would be easier for someone with more experience.
