Artist Trading Cards

I created backgrounds with some of my inks, as well as with watercolor paints.  I then went ahead and added other layers of stickers, scrapbook papers, rub-on’s, and drawings etc.
I created some artist trading card samples for a few classes that I will be doing next spring.  I’ve never made artist trading cards before but it’s very similar to the art journaling that I do except it’s on a more miniature scale.  Artist trading cards are usually 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches (about the size of playing cards or the cards that people collect).
 I may end up putting some of these into my art journal because I don’t really know what to do with them otherwise.  I know that there are online communities where people trade these, I’m not sure if I’ll go in that direction.  Perhaps though, trading these might be a good way to get inspiration from other artists.
