Did some cards with butterflies last night - I'm in a ransom note ATC swap as well - I think that was influencing me!

(Edited this because I typed "unfluencing" instead of "influencing" - I have to say, I think I like the word "unfluencing" and might start using it - like when you see something you really dislike and think - hmm, I'll never make anything like that!)

Robin
01-25-2011, 07:08 PM
Very Beautifull!

Cat's Cradle
01-25-2011, 08:57 PM
Mailed today!

magicjessnrach
01-26-2011, 08:43 PM
Is it ok if I embroider my cards? I'm in the mood for some hand sewing :)

Robin
01-26-2011, 10:18 PM
That would be fine - any medium is exceptable! ;)

Cathy1
01-29-2011, 06:03 AM
Hope you like them. I already have your address so will set them on their way Monday.

The background for these cards is a thank you card I received with a 1:1 swap. The card was so pretty I managed to get four backgrounds out of it to use although I had to strategically place a couple of the images on the card to cover the manufacturers blurb :)

Robin
01-29-2011, 12:43 PM
Very Pretty :jiggy:

Cat's Cradle
01-29-2011, 01:00 PM
I'm glad I'm not the only one who saves my cards for potential art use! Very pretty cards!

Cathy1

I'm glad I'm not the only one who saves my cards for potential art use! Very pretty cards!
I've used cards like this a couple of times and been pleased with the results - your idea of using playing cards and the results are stunning BTW. I commented on them earlier but love the colours and the way they intermingle.

Cat's Cradle
01-29-2011, 05:05 PM
I've been doing a lot of beeswax cards lately. Honestly, sometimes I do them just for the aroma of hot honey! :rolleyes:

Robin
02-10-2011, 07:01 PM
Not a problem and thanks for letting me know!

Good Luck on your move!

Robin

I am thrilled with my cards in this swap. I received a marker drawn ATC from DuckDuckGoose. From Ivan 101 I received an absolutely gorgeous card featuring butterflies on an ink background. And my third card was a colorful mixed media ATC by PAMI.

What a great variety of art and talent. Thanks so much for this great swap!
