I haven't posted any of my ATCs for a long time so I thought I'd share some of my favourites here. These are all watercolours with black lines in India Ink with a crow quill pen (it's my fav because it's so flexible giving those great varieties in line thickness!) on 140lbs paper. Some of the cards were done for the ongoing ATC swap on this site, and some are from another site for themed swaps.

I love these! I was trying to pick out a favourite but there are just so many! They are so colourfull and full of life. I do particularly enjoy the cat with Howl's Castle, the green Satyr lady and the Boulangerie.

What talent!  We particularly liked the cats and the fancy mouse lady.

Awesome! These are amazing. I used to make lots of them but lost interest when my paints dried up. Made them for grandchildren's birthdays now, but haven't swapped in long time.

Ah! I love your art work. And the green satyr, which I am happy to say has a prized spot in my collection, is one of my all time favorite cards! I love the girl in the fox outfit especially too. Wonderful job. I always love seeing (and receiving) your work!

Thanks everyone! I love how supportive people are here.  Grin

and MeMeBevsCreations - you should try some swapping! There's a very easygoing swap called the Ongoing ATC swap - a new one is done every month and you do just one card a month, or lots.
But I'm glad to hear that you still paint for birthdays - that is such a great present for people. I'm working on an art book for my baby because she likes flipping through my binder of ATCs that I've collected over the years.

And Gozer, I'm super happy to hear that about the Satyr! I have her in another gallery and she was coveted by a quite few people.

oh how I love your stuff!  I love that kitty with the castle on his back!  I have a soft spot for kitties.  But you work is so amazing.  You are quite a treasure to have in our swap!

Wow! I love your style Cheesy these are all so amazing! They are making me miss the ATC swap even more! And it's nice to see men on some ATC's. It feels like males are so much harder to find then females for some reason.
