my first ATC swap

So I joined in my first ever ATC swap via willowing and swapped with a lovely artist called Tracey Russell who lives in Canada.  The theme for the swap was ladybirds.  The size for ATC is really quite small at 2.5" x 3.5" and so it took me a little while to decide what to do in such a small space.

The first card was more of a cartoony effort with a messy background... cute but not brilliant.

The second card was a more anatomical drawing with some dimensional gel paint and some faux enamel spots.  I love this and the swipe silver paint for the background.

As for the cards I received from Tracey I will be adding them in a future post if I can't find a link to her blog.

Next months theme is stars and I'm already signed up and excited. Wonder where my artwork will end up and what I'll get in return.

Thanks for looking.

  1. Love your ladybirds Catherine. I know what you mean about getting used to the size, I struggled too as I'd never done them before. You've reminded me that I need to add mine to my blog too!

    Look forward to seeing your star ATCs x

  2. Your artwork will give you hours of satisfaction, not much else is important unless you have a hidden agenda for yourself. If you have; good luck with it x
