Artist Trading Coin project for DT no 223 at TCCC blog

ATCs can be artist trading card OR artist trading coin is a theme/prompt option for #223 at TCCC. The other option is animal. My selected image from 1 of the prize sponsor is an insect (Butterflies in Mason Jar).

ATCs are typically 2.5" x 3" and the coins about 3". Mine's enlarged to show the details=

The Crafter's Café Challenge blog ID badge looks similar to my personalized one (shown above).
