Challenge #8: Claudine Hellmuth inspired ATC

This week's challenge is making an ATC inspired by Claudine Hellmuth.
An ATC is an Artist Trading Card and is 2.5" x 3.5" piece of art, it is never sold but traded with others. Your challenge is to create an ATC using the inspiration from Claudine Hellmuth. Her work can be seen at
Claudine uses real photos of people in her art. So, look for those family photos you have and get creative. Remember ATC's are 2.5x3.5 but you could mount these into cards or frame them by themselves

Claudine will also be visiting our challenge as well this week and I can't wait for her to see all your inspired ATC's.
