A New Thing...Artist Trading Coins

A new swap/trade is appearing in groups, on facebook and some blogs...so of course I had to find out more.
I don't know who thought up the idea for this new craze, but I am happy they did...
Artist Trading Coins.
As I have no 2.5" punch and I am rubbish at cutting circles..I ordered some fabulous mdf coins from Fernli Designs. They are perfect..and of course can take any medium thrown at it.

Here is my first ever Atc Coin...this one is made from gray board.


I used backing paper over the coin and then stamped over that..added the image of the little girl and then some flowers. The edges I distressed with ink.


These 3 Atc Coins I have made for a group swap...these are the Fernli Design mdf coins...for each coin I used my own papers that I had used oxide inks on..then added stamped images, the bathing beauty was found in my stash of scraps...
All coins must be 2.5" and really can be made from anything..I prefer the mdf as they are so rigid and will withstand battering during postage...

These are fabulous. I'm enamoured by circles too at the moment.
