Our ATC swap is open to everyone near and far. The themes are all based on Tim Holtz Distress Colors which means these colors need to be featured prominently in your ATCs. What you create with these colors is up to you. You can use inks, glazes, paints, sprays, or stains. Just create 6 ATC cards and have them turned in by the due date listed. You can drop them off or mail them in and get 6 cards back. If you are mailing cards in please allow for shipping time and remember to include a self-addressed stamp envelope to get 6 cards back.
