Sunflower ATC Swap

At the artisttradingcards yahoo group, I'm hosting a sunflower ATC swap.  The background started with a vintage ledger page. I used acrylic paint and stencils from Tim Holtz and the The Crafter's Workshop to make the background.  I added strips of washi tape here and there.  The sunflower stamp is from Unity Stamps.  It's colored with Copic markers, Spica glitter pens and glaze pens.  The flowers were outlined with a stabilio all pencil. I added little jewels to each.  I love sunflowers and have a large sunflower tattoo on one of my ankles.  The sunflower is the Kansas state flower and I'm from Kansas originally.  Happy sunflowers to you!

Put a Bird on It ATC Swap

At the artisttradingcards yahoo group, I'm hosting an ATC swap, "Put a Bird on It." The background is made using an inventory tag, Distress oxide and Archival inks, Tim Holtz layering stencils and The Crafter's Workshop templates.  The bird image is from Unity Stamps.  The birds were colored with various artist pens. I cut the branches out of cardstock and colored them brown with Distress oxide inks. Tim Holtz chit chat stickers were added.  I hope you enjoy these little birdies!
