Blupaisan sent me an atc for my Clue theme:

Mrs. Peacock in the conservatory with the wrench.

Check out the *evil eye* on this one!

This card is *the best!*  I mean, that Mrs. Peacock will take your head off!.  What a great character and delightful execution!  (No pun intended! lol)

One of my favorite cards ever, Blu!  Thanks so much!  Cheesy

Oh my word, that is fantastic. I am so envious of your drawing skills blu. Just look at that face! Wow.

Rosie1981 sent me 2 acrylic pour Atcs
Ive kind of been obsessed with watching YouTube videos about this, the cells that form and just the way the paint moves around the surface. So glad to add these to my ATC collection, thanks Rosie, theyre lovely!

I have been watching various videos and haven't had the guts to try it on a large scale.  This was the perfect project to get my feet wet.   Grin

Blupaisan, your work is always stunning. I love Mrs. Peacock. I love every little "imperfect" detail, like whenever the lines don't come to a close and the colors come outside the line work. When growing up, it's always drilled into your mind to stay inside the lines and to keep everything crisp and rigid. Then, I'd look at all of my favorite artists like Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss, and I'd notice they weren't following these rules! Now, I too try to stay loose and I've learned to fall in love when the watercolors bleed outside the lines.

Rosie 1981, those ATCs came out beautifully. I considered claiming emilywilde for the same thing. I didn't quite know what it was and also found myself on a youtube binge. It looks like it is similar to playing with alcohol inks, in that you get an organic, reveal moment. I love your choice in colors. It reminds me of photographs of Earth from space.

And mandykaye, I'm glad you liked Sir Didymus. His face was the most awkward. I felt like I couldn't quite get the features and all of his fur/whiskers right. So, don't stare at him for too long! He looks his best with a quick glance!!!  Cheesy

mandykaye created two seriously awesome cards for me!  First up, my trees theme

it is called Spruce Forest.
The differing angles and the intense coloring make for an incredible piece of art.
I love how the sky varies and the tree outlines. I am totally swooning over this card.

for my cats theme, here is the second beauty!

I have yet to be as daring as mandykaye in choosing colors for otherwise drabbish items or critters. A purple based kitty is STUNNING!!! Check out the eyes, too.
Gosh, I am in love with this wee happy kitty.
thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!


There are the Redcoats. And they are ours! Or tonight Becky Thatcher sleeps a widow!

OOo love the cat. and the mountains. Mrs. Peacock is a hoot and those swirly ones are intriguing. I want to touch. Sir Didymus is just so cool.

And I received from mandykaye on my houses theme a whole city. The colors and the tinted backdrops are perfect. The colors are delicious.

And Rosie1981 also picked my houses theme. I dream in houses frequently. she got to use her House stamps and I am so lucky that I received two. One is ATC size and the other just didn't meet the requirements but came along for the ride.
