this is my first time posting pics, hope this works.
This is also my fist try at ATC's


I CAN NOT draw, but I color like a pro!!   Cheesy  So this is something I tried today.
I used Bic Mark-It pens    
Strathmore 300 Series 140# Watercolor Paper (bought them cut into ACEO ATC 2.5 x 3.5 cards)
A computer print out of a stained glass template
water color pencil


Step 1 ~ Lightly color cards with a pink water color pencil, then go over them with a wet paint brush. Let them dry (or dry with a hair dryer)


Step 2 ~ Tape cards to BACK of a coloring sheet. This one is a stained glass template. I used EMT paper tape, similar to masking tape & I had it on hand.


Step 3 ~ Color, color, color  I used Bic Mark-It pens. (Petal Pink , Fandango Pink , Dessert Rose , Cloud 9 Gray  and Tuxedo Black ~ I LOVE the color names)


Step 4~ keep coloring
You want to go over the colors a couple times. You want a good bleed through.


Step 5 ~ Flip over and carefully remove the tape.


Step 6 ~
Cards after tape is removed


Step 7 ~ All framed up!!

Any comments, criticisms, suggestions welcome!!

Thanks for looking!!

Those are really pretty! You gave me a great idea for a background image for another ATC I want to make.

And don't feel bad, I can't draw either - and you color better than me lol.

I' so excited ... I made a few sets of these (sets of 4 of the cards framed)
they sat in a consignment shop for a long time. She sells my soap & other little doodads that I make from time to time.
A guy bought 2 of the sets & loved them. He wants more. he has a bed & breakfast & wants them in different color combos to match different rooms at his inn.  =)
