491  Re: Ongoing tarot card swap gallery in The Swap Gallery by blupaisan on: August 02, 2011 12:32:14 PM
I got three to show off!
The first two from My_RubySlippers, on my Scottish theme, the lovers:

even the words have celtic bits in them!  I love the subtle tartan background and the thistle love crest on the corner.  Great stuff!

And, on my pirate theme -

I truly love images of parts of ships (i am currently running the nautical swap) and this is perfect! X marks the spot, and there is great background mapping on this card.
Thank you very much My_RubySlippers.

I got this from realityinvazion, on my hands theme -

very clever to put 5 of pentacles in a 5-fingered hand. I love the distressed look of this card and the old fashioned drawing of the hand.
Thank you so much, realityinvazion.  Another great job you did!

I dont think I have seen this posted... if it was, excuse me. (-:
SabrinaLouiseMiller wanted a skeleton theme, so I made this -

I have seen so many pole dancers on ATCs lately - seems we all have this particular theme on our minds all at once, lol!

dinkime made me some awesome inchies, rinchies, and a twinchie!

I love it all, esp. the big owl who somehow has eyes that stick out (howdya do that?) and the paisley is gorgeous.  I also love the kitties, ya cant go wrong with kitties in my opinion.  Thank you dinkime!!

I have two cards to show off - one I got quite awhile ago when my camera was dead.  It is now up and running, so I can post MandyKaye's fantastic lovers card using my hummingbird theme -

I really really like this card! The yellow in the middle is so cheery and the touching beaks is adorable.  and I also have cone flowers in my yard, and plenty of hummers, too. They are right next to my step, where I sit to watch them just 2 feet from me!
Thank you , MandyKaye!

Next, one that I got today, first the bonus piece -

sorry about the fuzziness...\
Now, the REal Deal, my Sun card with the theme of sugar skulls utilized so cleverly -

themuppet did a wonderful job on this artwork, doncha think? I love the little skull flowers and the face on the sun.  Well done, and thank you so much, themuppet!

Now that my camera is back in the land of the living, I have 3 cards to show off ...
lolaandbean made me this terrific ladybug card that has a pop art feel to it, like a graphic take on a lady bug.  I think it came out great!

Thank yoiu, lolaandbean!
Next, two from pollyprissypants on my local expressions theme.  She picked out two Texan expressions that really tickled my funnybone!

I SWEAR I am going to start using 'bigger n dallas' in my vocab, even tho i am up here in Vermont.  I love it!
Thank you, pollyprissypants.

I have three wonderful cards to show off!!  my camera has been down in the dumps but is now up and running again, thank goodness, which is why I am late posting.
first up, a fantastic vintage high preistess from Sabertooth Pixie...

There are numerous elements to this card - so many layers and things added. I love even the feel of it! Thank you so much, Sabertooth Pixie.

next, 2 from ZidishaLuxe, the first being page of pentacles in a vintage mode.

There is a book I love of local child labor photos that I really love, and this card sure hits the nail!  Again, there are wonderful elements added, like the wordy background and the sewn stars.  Another big winner!

She also made a bang-up hands (my theme) card, the ace of wands.

I wish you all could feel this card.  It has a fuzzy material background and beaded lace at the bottom. not to mention tons of sewing around the edges - I love it!
The backs of both cards are also full of lovliness!
Thank you, ZidishaLuxe!

So, blupaisan is without camera and she asked me to post a pic of the inchies, rinchies and twinchie I sent to her. I also made her a bonus tw-rinchie (that's a 2 inch rinchie) but I didn't scan it, because... well, it's rather dimensional and didn't scan well, and I also made something similar for Nooo and I don't want to spoil the surprise - so Blu, if you have a pic or someone who can take a picture, go for it, but I don't have one.


Here they are:

She said she liked them! I went with owls and paisley. The paisley twinchie has a little book that I hand sewed together that has little facts about paisley in it.


Teamama, thank you so much for posting for me!
I love all of them, but I must say my two faves are the tw-rinchie which I will SOMEHOW post, and the owl to which you added a mustache and monicle.  so cute!  thanks for such great goodies!

Here's the ATC I made for blupaisan:

I wish my camera would cooperate!  I love my little kitty!she is sooo sweet. Thank you, Kartiana.  And thank you for the extra card.  With your letter E, I now have my whole name, and can put them together on my door.

I used a favorite childhood stamp for this and colored it in with pencils. I debated adding extra 3D elements, but in the end I felt it looked best just as it is  Smiley
