Autumn ATC

On 9ATC Group, the theme is Autumn. I used a Kaleidacolor ink pad and brayered on autumn colors onto the card stock. Then stamped oak leaves and the word "farewell" with sepia Archival ink.
 Colored the edges of the ATC with a copper metal leafing pen.
 Added a vintage image and a copper colored dragonfly brad.
"Ceres mourns Persephone"

Four Altered Playing Card

We are doing an Altered Playing Card (APC) Swap on ArtVentures Group. The theme is Numbers, for June it is Number Four.
I covered the playing cards with white Gesso and let it dry. Then covered them with a blue Distress paint, creating some texture by pressing two cards together and pulling apart and repeat several times. Then let it dry.

 Used a blue Distress Ink to stamp 4ever over the entire surface.

Stamped four with black India Ink. Used a blue glitter Gelly Roll pen to write friends and color in one of the "4ever"s.

Found a vintage image of four sailors and added to the APC

Coral Color Perception ATC Swap

The color is coral in June for the Color Perceptions ATC Swap on ArtVentures Group. The ATC is to be predominately coral and be how the color coral makes us feel.  Coral is an orangish pink color. Coral reminds me of warm, topical beaches with sparkling sand, a very peaceful color.
Used a glittery coral paper for the background. Added a vintage beach image, coral colored  mesh, coral fibers, and a strip of coral floral paper with dots of glittery coral paper.
