I completed my last two atcs for the SCS swap. The theme for the first one was lace. I had a lace transparency which I layered over some shiny turquoise cardstock to show off the design. I matted that on some deeper textured teal cardstock for contrast. Then I decided to add some lace trim along the top and bottom edge of the transparency and again along the bottom edge of the teal. Next came bling in the form of brads and pearls which I adhered to the smaller trim piece. Then colouring bliss! I coloured the Arty Expressions 2 digi stamp from CS Designs using my Prismacolors and a little OMS. Tiny rhinestones became the lights in her eyes. She has such a wistful expression. Love it! She is mounted on black cardstock and popped up on foam tape. I like the stark black next to the softness of her skin and the lace. A little word was added to the bottom right hand corner...just 'cuz. I am entering this card in the Anything Goes Challenge on Art With No Boundaries. CS Designs has several challenges each month. The artwork submitted is just beautiful. Check it out!
Thanks for visiting today. I appreciate it. I'm off to play in my journal.
Life is good; so is art.
