Found Poetry Artist Trading Cards

I'm the owner and co-moderator of the artisttradingcards yahoo group.  I recently signed up for a swap on the group - "Found Poetry".  The host sent pages from a crime thriller for everyone to use for the found poetry.  My pages had a shoot out, a court scene, and a physical attack upon people for example.  Lots of swear words and other subjects that aren't really appropriate for artist trading cards, in my opinion.  I persevered and came up with some found poetry from the pages.

 I used some black kraft core cardstock and some papers from a Teresa Collins 6x6 paper pack for this ATC.  The woman image is from Tumble Fish Studios at the Deviant Scraps website.  I changed up the eyes with images from Tumble Fish Studio.
I used some papers from a Theresa Collins 6xt paper pack.  The images and charm are available at Collage Stuff.  The little gold borders are gold peel off stickers.

It was fun to make these ATC's.  Try found poetry!  And thanks for stopping by!

Halloween Tag

The September swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group is a Halloween tag swap.  Halloween is my favorite holiday!  The dog and witch image are from Hidden Vintage Studios at the Deviant Scraps website.  The tag, ribbon, charms, German scrap spider web and Tim Holtz Label Letters are available at Collage Stuff.  I used Chillingsworth Manor papers that were in stock last Halloween at Collage Stuff.  If you'd like to participate in this swap, join the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group.  Thanks for stopping by!
