Catching Up.... again...

A couple more swaps I needed to catch up with. I have been so busy with work and a month long cold that I just have not been doing much art, again. It comes and goes but it is never gone for long.

So this was an ATC from a Swap-bot swap of making an ATC with sheet music and a butterfly on it:

And this was from the Dia de los Muertos post card swap on MMSA. I had started a few others when I was at my friend Leslie's a couple of week's ago but never had time to make them. I will just send in this one.

Both started with a gelli-print background, then I added stamps, collage, washi tape and postage stamp on the ATC. The DOTD card top skull image is from online and I wish I had saved the page so I could credit it. I will look for it when I have a moment, sorry. The La Calavera is one of the Loteria cards in B&W.

  1. I like both pieces. Beautiful colours and lots of interesting details.

  2. Stunning pictures both but, I have to confess, I like the skull for Dia de los Muertos best.

    My Mandarin Orange Monday is of Indian women in colorful saris.

  3. wow- LOVE your day of the dead postcard!!

  4. I'm with Linda - great skull!

  5. It really is fantastic! Love all the pattern and superimposed drawing. Thanks you sharing on Mandarin Orange Monday #62:)

  6. Hope that cold disappears forever for you! So drawn to the skull - the way you have the gelli background with your focal image! Thanks for sharing with the party!
