ATC Swap Grumbacher #51 – Portal

Hello all,

Grumbacher is hosting an ATC swap for original art work so…I thought I would gave it a try.  Below is an ATC that I made from scratch!  No stamps (be still my heart)!  I drew the flower image and hand wrote a thought that came to mind when I was considering “portal” swap theme.  I colored  the ATC with Grumbacher watercolors, Derwent Inktense pencils, and My Tattered Angels sprays. I then added shadowing and highlights with Pitt Artist pens.  Oh, I almost forgot…I made my own dot stencil and used homemade modeling paste to add some texture to the card.

Creating a completely original piece of art (even a mini piece at only 2.5″ by 3.5″) was a real challenge for me.  I enjoyed it a lot however, I am not ready to give up my stamps yet.  lol

The best part of participating in these swaps is seeing what you will get in return.  I can’t wait!

Hope that all of you are having a wonderful week!
Happy Day!
