I love the little monster! And both the spirit card and the blue card are very pretty Smiley

I received from TerraBella01 on my interesting aces theme. I really like all the layers and details that went into it! Again, I got a calendar/magazine envelope that was the prettiest thing in my mailbox! Thank you TerraBella01!

...so many exciting cards...

I've had something of a hiatus from Craftster before coming back for this swap, so it'll be interesting to see if I manage to actually post this photo first time around...

I have received my first ATC from the talented cmarion3! She chose the "textures" theme and sent me this lovely collage of a bird behind a nest made of bits of milkweed pods - I'm not sure we even get these over here, but the white bit at the front is so soft and fluffy... The card is safely propped up on my pinboard where I can see it.



The scan is a little bit peelie-wally so I might see if I can get a slightly clearer picture from my camera later if people can't make out the details.

I love the textures on the bird card, and the colors are just lovely!

Check out this amazing card from ale0056 for my windows (and seasons) theme:



It's hard to see, but along with the beautiful colors it has wonderful texture as well.  I love it!

I had a jackpot in my mailbox with these two cards from My_RubySlippers.  I am just in awe of this stippling technique.  These are so beautiful!

First,  "How Does the Fox Feel" for my foxes theme:



and second for Doorways to Dreams:



I love them both - I can't express how impressed I am!

Oh, WOW all these latest cards are just beautiful! 

---Clever use of the scrabble tile on the Ace!
---I just want to touch that texture card.  Craftster needs touch screens Smiley
---Each part of the windows card could be a card itself.  soo pretty!
---My_RubySlippers--- your cards just continue to be stunning.  You are so very good at this technique!!

The bird nest texture card is made from milk weed pod. I was digging wood out from under snow a few weeks back and saw the dried pods with some of their silky, fly in the wind seed fluff still on them. It's a weed plant in the mid and eastern US. We always let some grow to attract Monarch butterflies, the caterpillars love to hang out and eat their way into butterflyhood on milk weed.

Here's a bit better picture. It was hard to get a good picture, yes, craftster needs to upgrade to the 3D version. How cool would that be?

It is ink over a backdrop of maybe watercolors or alchol inks and salt resist. Let me know! I love the effect.

"It is in Nature that my Spirit Sings"


Sorry this is like a page late... Yes! It's ink over watercolor with salt resist, but I sealed it with sculpey glaze, which reacted with the salt-resisted watercolor paper in a way I didn't expect!


I love all these cards lately! You guys are all amazing artists!
