    Lady Liberty

    One of the most recognizable women in the world, this swap is in her honor.



    This symbol of Liberty and Freedom is not standing still or at attention in the harbor, she is moving forward, as her left foot tramples broken shackles at her feet, in symbolism of the United States's wish to be free from oppression and tyranny. The seven spikes on the crown represent the Seven Seas and seven continents. Her torch signifies enlightenment. The tablet in her hand represents knowledge and shows the date of the nation's birth, July 4, 1776.
    See more information on her history at Wikipedia.
    She has inspired thousands - how does she inspire you?

    THE CARDS -
    ATC size - 2.5x3.5 inches, landscape or portrait.
    3 for 3 cards--send three cards, get three in return.
    All mediums welcome--show us your best, well-constructed style!
    Please try to limit weighty embellishments (due to postage costs!)
    Please include your ATCards user name on the back of your cards.
    Use some sort of protection (sleeves, envies, etc)--protect your art during mailing!

    MAILING & POSTAGE -
    U.S. participants - please include a legible mailing label with loose postage.
    International participants - please provide a legible mailing label - I'll cover postage for this round.
    Please include your ATCards user name on the envelope--thanks.

    Thanks JAD! They are a mix of real and faux postage, a magazine image, some vintage machinery tape, tissue paper, glazes of gesso, black paint, marker and paint pen, and a bit of pigment pearlex powders, so they have green and blue SHINE.
