Artist Trading Card Swap ~ 53 little gems landed in my mailbox

Artist Trading Card Swap ~ 53 little gems landed in my mailbox

About a year ago, I signed up for a massive ATC swap amongst Zentangle teachers from all over the world.  Each participant was to create 52 Artist Trading cards, send them in, and receive back 52 cards from other participants.

This huge undertaking was organized by Sharon Payne of Styx and Stones.  There were over 130 participants and some did more than one deck!  Sharon and her fellow North Carolina  CZT’s met up in a mall, it looks like they took over an entire food court, and “dealt” the decks.

With permission, I share the cards!  (I will post pictures of the ones I submitted after all of the ATC’s have been distributed)
