ATC Tuesday

Some more round robins - even when I do nothing else, I seem to keep up with working on round robins - perhaps because they only require a small amount of work, not even as much as making a full card!  These are all ones where two people had already worked on them, and I just needed to add finishing touches. Some flowers on these cute animal cards, 

a flower and a border on these floral stamp cards, 

And a bit of lettering (and a few more eggs) on these cards.

Round Robin Friday

These are all round robin cards where I started the card and sent it along to another artist, who added something and sent it to a third person to finish off. So I can show what I sent (below) and what I got back in the end (above).

RRR Swap

These cards are for a swap themed "Recycle, reuse, repurpose" - the idea being to only use things which are recycled, used from other sources, etc., and not take new materials from your stash. For me, this was pretty easy - I have a lot of stuff which comes from recycled sources. 

All my backgrounds were from old pieces from the the girls' artwork; I used parts of envelopes, old stamps, some card catalogue cards, text leftover from making found poetry, washi tape which I salvaged from envelopes sent to me, some things cut from tickets, etc.

Round Robin Friday

This one was fun to work on - what was coming out of the egg?  Took me a while to find the right image(s), but I knew I wanted something unusual. 

A very neutral background can be almost as hard to decide how to  embellish than one which has a clear theme. When that happens, I usually just look for something I have three of.

More unthemed ATCs

A few more ATCs made the other day, with the ones I showed last week - again, the backgrounds are some I received with a swap, so I had a head start on making the cards.

Round Robin Friday

This was one of those round robins where I had a hard time thinking of what to add. For one thing, the image was quite big. For another, it's not my natural style or topic, so I have to work harder. I found the cat image in a pad of paper, and cut him out - worked well.

This one was a lot more straightforward.

Non-themed ATCs

For once, I made some ATCs with no particular theme, and not for a swap - just to make some. Some of these, I may swap individually with people, but they were just made to use bits and pieces I had knocking around. All of the backgrounds came from a background swap or were given to me, so I had a head start...

Round robin Friday

Three sets of cards which I started, and then other players worked on. A fish theme, to go with some bioluminescent stamps, 

a dance theme to go with the dancer charms

and a pink but wintery theme.

Pick-a-theme Swap

These cards are for the type of swap where each player specifies what they'd like to receive, so instead of making 3 (or however many) cards which are the same theme, you make one for each person.

So I had a spooky theme to make, 

plus a theme of angels

(this one was a hostess card, so I chose the cactus theme from her stated likes & dislikes)

a Tarzan theme

and a Wonder Woman (DC Comics) theme. #
