ooo...nice additions to the gallery!!!  again with stitching.  I need to come up with a card that can use some stitching.  I just love the idea!

oh it almost made it.  I see some of the pins came unglued.  Sad  nothing a little dab can't fix.  I'm glad you like it though.  getting the shape of the hat took some doing too.  I now have a pattern for an atomic bomb and a hat.  lol.  ok.  who wants a shaped card next!  Cheesy

thanks, curiousfae.  Smiley  I used an image of the Hatter's hat from the live-action Alice movie and tried to find beads that looked similar to the do-dads on his hat.  while I didn't have too many choices for gold (I think there was a flat thingy in gold on his and I don't own a lot of gold bits), I think I did pretty well matching them.  Grin

amy22, that el diabolito is too much!  I never would have thought of doing a mashup for one of those cards!

OMG that Binghamton card is a riot!  lol.  and I love the background too.

and that settles it.  I didn't really shop around when I was at Michaels today, but since I have to go back tomorrow (and it'll be a shorter day), I'm going to take a look at the watercolor supplies.  I really, REALLY want to play around with it after seeing all these cards.  maybe then I can make my own backgrounds at least.

Watch for sales and coupons! I'm on the mailer list for Michaels and recently had one for 30% off all paints! Two things I've learned with watercolor: 1. Coloring over it with colored pencils had an odd effect, not sure I liked it, 2. Coating it with Mod Podge made my colors run on my current card. I'll have to cover it with another paper cutting. Smiley

they had a coupon for 40% at Michaels.  Tongue  so I got a nice set that was originally $5 with lots of colors.  I'm on their mailing list too.  plus I have that new membership thing too.  yesterday the lady who rang me up said a 50% off came in an email, but when I looked today, there was nothing there.  and it didn't go to my spam box so...   Undecided

but good pointers.  thanks!  I will try out the pencil thing just out of curiosity.

I really really want to.  let me just get more organized and I'll get to the questionnaire.  Grin

crafting on both of my swaps has come to a halt.  I was going to work on them today (avoiding glitter at ALL costs.  at least until Wednesday), but arthritis decided to join me while I was at work.  I have this amazing cayenne rub my cousin and her husband make and sell on my knuckles and I don't want to get it on anything.  Undecided  at least I can wipe off my laptop.  *sigh*  I love being old at 34.  -__-

that fool card is AWESOME!  lol

and that night sky...WOW!  I'm seriously impressed with what people can do with watercolor (I too am questioning if it's watercolor because I never know unless someone tells me).

my turn again!

I got a lovely weird America card from loca4crafts today!  THANK YOU FOR NOT PUTTING GLITTER ON IT!!!  lol.  I don't know if I could have handled that today.  as much as I love glitter, inventorying Christmas glitter picks at Michaels makes me loathe glitter for a while (and that's exactly what I did today.  thank the gods they don't have their full stock of those picks yet.  but there are glittery Halloween ones to do tomorrow).  lol.  but then I get over it and I'm all "OMG GLITTER YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!".

first there's the front picture.  a card about the Oregon Country Fair. (loca4crafts says "it promotes sustainability, peace, and is basically a big hippie festival"):


next up, a mudman.  "the mud people wear very little clothing, cover themselves in mud and wander around the OCF grounds acting like cavemen":


then we have a couple of people dressed up as cute monsters and the wooded setting the OCF takes place in.  pretty isn't it?


unfortunately the last picture was slightly stuck to the inside and tore a little.  but that's ok.  the damage isn't too bad and you can still see the pretty trees.

thank you SO much, loca4crafts!!!  that's two very nifty/weird things from Oregon and Washington so far.  I NEED MORE!!!  FROM EVERY STATE!!!  lol

Note to self: When using watercolors let one color dry before painting another right next to it  Tongue Off to the store to pick up one supply (hopefully) for KK's card  Cheesy

yeah, watercolor can be tricky like that.  or so I've heard.  Roll Eyes  I can't wait to get my first card in YEARS from you!!!

I just hope it lives up to your expectations! My style has changed over the YEARS. lol  Smiley

not worried!  different styles make the cards more interesting!  Grin  especially when different styles come from one person.  it's fun to see how their style changes.  Grin

Haven't checked this board in a few days, but I wanted to compliment Krafty_karasu on La Rana. I love paper cutting but I don't have a machine. I can't get nearly that detailed by hand and my joints act up after about an hour.

awww...thanks!  I got my machine years ago for Christmas.  I don't have very many cartridges for it thanks to their price tags.  Undecided  and I always seem to miss the sales.  doing this by hand isn't very easy for me either.  like the fairy I cut out for loca4crafts' card.  that was killing my fingers after only a few minutes.  but the manicure scissors do help.  I think really it's the design of the handle.  they're not made for comfort.  Undecided  I got the idea to use them from someone on here when I was in an altered puzzle swap.  they really do come in handy.

I claim Susie Apple for eyes/eyeballs!

6 claimed
1 sent
4 received

I'm in South Carolina, USA.
I do not care for the smell of smoke regardless of what it comes from.  no nudity (I got an ATC once of a mermaid.  she was topless, but she had stars covering her boobies.  that is fine), foul language, gore (when I say gore, I mean blood AND guts, body parts that look like they were torn off, seriously gross stuff like that.  a blood splatter is no biggie), Tessellation patterns (ok in small amounts), drug references, religious references, or political references.  I'm ok with 3D elements, but please don't make them too super thick.  They will be going in card pages in a binder, and I want them to fit in the pockets.

Most of this list can be found on my Pinterest boards, and I would just put "look at my Pinterest" to make things easier, but there are things I don't really want ATCs of, so I had to make a more specific list.

- video games (Skyrim, Silent Hill, Fatal Frame, Five Nights at Freddy's, Kingdom Hearts, Persona/SMT/Atlus, Super Mario Bros. 2, God of War, Alice: Madness Returns, Haunting Ground, Okami)
- Marilyn Manson
- The Hunger Games
- Harry Potter/Gryffindor/Daniel Radcliffe
- vampires (that includes Twilight/Edward Cullen)
- crows/ravens
- black/red/silver/grey/mint green/turquoise
- feathers
- glitter/sparkly/shiny
- Greek mythology
- Egyptian mythology/Bastet
- Halloween/Autumn/candy corn
- fantasy creatures (unicorns, pegasus, dragons, fairies, mermaids (Disney's Ariel is ok), etc.)
- my favorite characters (check my Pinterest.  it's listed on my profile)
- Todd McFarlane's Spawn
- movies/TV/books (check my Pinterest)
- Japan
- steampunk
- keys
- pop-up/moveable
- dogs (specifically Doberman Pincher, Dachshund, Chihuahua, Pembroke Welsh Corgi, English Bulldog puppies, Shiba Inu)
- chipmunks, bunnies, groundhogs (I used to live 2 hours from Punxsutawney, PA), otters
- Goth Talk (SNL skit)
- PewDiePie (http://www.youtube.com/user/PewDiePie)
- Cryaotic Monkey (https://www.youtube.com/user/ChaoticMonki)
- Markiplier (https://www.youtube.com/user/markiplierGAME)
- famous internet cats (Pinterest boards "Kittehs of the Interwebs", "Shironekoshiro", "Maru & Hana", "Lil Bub", "Tardar Sauce")
- Sailor Moon (I love them all, but my faves are Sailor Pluto, Sailor Saturn, and Sailor Moon)
- Orphan Black (especially Helena)
- Weird America; make an ATC about something weird from where you're from!  live in New Jersey?  make one about the Jersey Devil legend.  Pennsylvania?  make one about Centralia.  Arizona?  make one featuring Coffee Pot Rock.  just remember; keep it tame.  see above for what I'd prefer to keep out of my ATCs.   Wink
- paper quilling
- a combination of things from this list!  Smiley
