NELG Lace Challenge
Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are all the rage among artists of all medium types. They are 2½" by 3½" cards that are used as the support for 2-D art, and are either traded with friends or other artists or are kept and displayed as small examples of the person’s work.
Each year you are challenged to create an ATC with your handmade lace as at least part of the art: it must be made by you and can be any form of lace. It should be 2-D and fit in the space of the card (the card must fit in its envelope), and must meet the specifications of the theme for the current year. Details are usually announced some time in January and entries are due by the date of the annual retreat (late May).
Details for 2013 are available here.
