Here are three artist trading cards that I made using nearly all scraps.
The base is repurposed cardboard from a product container.
The original size was 3.5 inches high by 7.5 inches wide. I made this collage in a long panel then sliced it into three ATCs when I was finished.
The background was hand painted with acrylic paints (done a few months ago for future use).
I then took scraps from the 1.5 inch square collages, other scraps that I had laying around, and a couple of old Valentine stickers that my grandmother had purchased in 1973.
I also used a few cancelled postage stamps that I had received on mail recently.
