The second swap I ever joined was May's Ongoing ATC Swap.  I joined at the very tail end of it and I had never done ATCs before that point.  They just looked like so much fun to do!  So, here are my first ever ATCs!

For lolaandbeans' Audrey Hepburn and Trains theme.  Audrey is was done with masking fluid and watercolors, with some added sparkle with a gel pen.  The train was cut from an old Monopoly board and the card was mod podged on. 

For blupaisan's Nautical/Seaside theme and Redstar13's Buffy the Vampire Slayer theme.  The ocean was done in layers of tissue paper applied with mod podge and then watercolors on top.  The little starfish are real (I have a whole container of them).  Mr. Pointy has a fabric background and sparklie ribbon.

For lolaandbean's Balloon theme.  The clouds were done in chalk using a stencil I made.  The balloon are stamped and filled in with Souffle and Glaze pens.

Thanks for looking!

These are lovely cards, I love the variety of them.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I absolutely love when you do those water colored ones. I am going to have to try it when my life calms down. I know you put a tut somewhere. These are great!
