The theme for 9ATC is Pen and Ink. Since I can not draw, I decided to make a pen and ink background. Stamped the dove and "peace" with black India ink. Used a black ball point pen and ruler to draw diagonal lines. Used a silver metallic Gelly Roll pen to add dots and an eye to the dove.

Used a floral die to cut out petal shapes from the purple papers. Punched a circle out of the dictionary background paper and inked the edges with black dye ink.
Used ATC cards that I had previously painted with orange, yellow and gold acrylic paints. Used a purchased floral embossed paper, along with black and white papers I had previously added gold inks. Tore these papers and adhered to the orange atcs. Colored the edge of the atc with black dye ink. Created a collage flower with the background papers. Covered the atc with clear tar gel and let dry. Added the word "bloom" with green Dyno tape.
