Bird Postcard Swap on MMSA(Mail Me Some ART)

Bird Postcard Swap

Each postcard has a different character/style to it, although the bird is the same. Each bird is created on my son's old MATH schoolwork paper from last year. I used water based pastels. Love how they allow transparency. I drew them with a thin black sharpie.
The fence is wall paper, The background of the one with the washy tape is stamped with a homemade foam stamper with paint.
I enjoy working with mixed mediums.

Two new swaps for ATC_Fun Yaoo group.

Fall Colors Swap 3 for 3
I joined another Yahoo ATC group that is very active with wonderful swaps. it is a hopping group. I want to join all of them but don't have the time to create them! This one looks simple but there was a lot of work behind it. I used pastels on Text book leaves cut by my Big Shot. The tedious task was the edging each contour of the leaf. Background is gold metallic paint with stamping. 

Fantastic Fish Swap 3 for 3
The second exciting swap I signed up for, back to back! Had lots of fun with this one. The little fish isdone with watercolor pastels and some turquoise colored BIC ball point pen(my sister found them for me!!!). The fish was then given a coat of glass bead gel medium by Golden. Background was tissue paper strips cut into wave-like motion with some more ball point wave action and stamping of fish and circles for bubbles.

Can't wait to get theirs in return!
