I can't believe I forgot to post pictures of the ATC that fancybutch sent me!

She claimed me for my outer space theme.  And she included an awesome surprise!!  a vintage worry themed card!



I love them, Thank you!!! Smiley
Oh, love that vintage cosmonaut postage stamp on the outer space one! How appropriate.

Here's my very original "Spice" card from cmarion3: "Cinnamon Witch".



Very, very cool. I think she's going in a shadowbox frame, and going up in my entryway for Halloween! (The rest of the year she'll have to live in my studio . . . )

On the note, she wrote that my little witch isn't actually evil; she just loves wearing black. Since that's the predominant color in my wardrobe, it's especially appropriate.

I thought I had already posted my photo of Robinpich's awesome combination of Zentangle and watercolors! I don't know why I didn't post it; I had already uploaded it to flickr and everything . . .



I have been inspired; I did some watercolor ATC backgrounds while I was on vacation, and they will be used as Zentangle bases! I never thought of combining the two. Thanks, Robinpich!

(I have cards to post from Whysteria and cmarion3, but I just got back into town last night, so I won't be able to post those until tomorrow!)

Oops. Farmgirljane asked me to post the pic of hers, and I totally forgot!

The second card was a wrapped card like the one I sent to both barbolot and . Here's the unique one:



She said she liked farm-themed card (no surprise there!), so I sent a rooster! The rooster was colored with Pebble's shimmer pearlescent chalk.

63. Do Not Disturb



I wish I had scanned it bigger. It says, "Never laugh at live dragons." Cheesy

Well, the photos actually turned out better than the scans, since three out of four cards are three dimensional...

From goatgoddess...



And from Barbolot...





And that card from goatgoddess was my first zetti, too...and what a nice way to start my collection! On the other card, I love the gold and black; it's kind of mysterious...

Barbolot, I love the teacup and heart one! Nice use of fabric. And the other one is so expressive.

And here are a few more I got, at the same time. For best results, you may want to "roll" the sheet down onto the shaving cream. That way, you can see if all of the sheet is going to make contact and fix it before you get big white blobs! (I learned the hard way...see the last one.)

Number 2: Swirled some more first...


Number 3: More swirling...and only a quarter page. I did drop in a bit more magenta, which shows up at the right.


Number 4: Scooped in some of the white shaving cream from the other end of the pan...


Number 5: Still more white. The "faux deckle" from the torn edge is beautiful!


And the "bad" one...it had white areas from trapped air. I tried doing it again, but it didn't go so well. Oh well.


It's hard to tell from the scans, but numbers 4 and 5 are actually much lighter. I swirled in more of the white shaving cream, and it resulted in a much more subtle finished product.

It's actually a good strategy to try and get some bold ones and some subtle ones from each "print run." It works especially well if you do larger pieces for the first couple and then switch to smaller ones. After two or three, you'll find that the level of the shaving cream is getting low. If you switch to smaller sheets, you can mound up the remaining shaving cream and get a few more prints. The last two were easily light enough to write on...

I finally remembered to get some shaving cream! And then I get home...no food coloring! So I used my Posh Rainbow reinking fluid, in blue and magenta.



The first piece. 8.5" x 5.5", 88 lb Via Expressions cardstock, with a torn edge. I intentionally made it more heavily colored in some areas. Smiley

Edit: Image STILL won't work. I'll try to fix it later...

Edit: 05.21.07: FINALLY works!
