So many new comrades in arts (hee hee)! I'm having a grand time hearing from you all. I do hope you keep visiting!
I am not adept at sketching, but I have found it soothing...especially when something decent appears on the paper! For this ATC I scrunched up red gift tissue paper, then glued it onto a card and rubbed a gold stamp pad across the surface for some highlights. I inked the black around the edges for a finish and outlined the picture, too.
Don't look too close at the background in this ATC - it'll make your eyes go buggy. I used the wax technique to make the text translucent. I painted the letters with Lumiere paint, I highly recommend picking up a jar - it is so sparkly pretty.
A couple of reminders: If there is anyone in the Sacramento area interested in joining a swap group, please contact me. I met with Cheryl Ford today and had a lovely time talking shop. I so enjoyed browsing her ATC album and would love to meet others with the same interest.
The landscape-theme challenge is almost over. Let me know if you've posted a completed ATC on your site!
