One of the groups I belong to on Facebook –
is gearing up to do a trade with the theme of
We can trade with two people.
Can you guess my theme?
Hahaha! Hopefully my theme is obvious!
I know these pictures will appear large on the
computer screen, keep in mind ATCs are 2.5″ x 3.5″
pieces of art. You have to figure out what you can
fit into that small amount of space that
will reflect the theme.
For both cards I started with gelli print pulls
I did on water color paper.
I used a stencil and left a bunch of previous
paint on my plate, making some really
cool looking bubbles.
Inked the edges with a teal StayzOn ink pad,
Shading is graphite, highlights is a white
gelly roll pen.
The sweet little mermaid was part of the
cardboard packaging for some Santoro stamps.
The O tiles, glass flowers and cute little charms were
stuck down with glue dots. Then I put them into
baseball card sleeves to protect them.
An hour’s worth of work at tops.
Can’t wait to see who I get to send them to!
I’m looking forward to being part of this group.
Now I just have to find the time.
