...and Some Red

These are all for a PIck a Theme swap on ATCs for All.  I started with similar backgrounds for all of them, created using inks, rubber stamping and acrylic paint, and then I did something different with each one.

The fish is painted in acrylic.

The bird and the branches are made using various pieces of printed paper, pieced together and shaded using coloured pencils. I've drawn the various bits using a PITT artist pen and accented with white gel pen.


For the kiss I have done a gel medium image transfer, added a definition from a dictionary and edged with acrylic paints and rubber stamping.
The rooster is done by piecing together pieces of printed paper in a similar way to the bird.  I've added shading using pens and pencil and a dictionary definition.
Finally I have done a zentangle style ATC using PITT artist pen and white gel pen (background as above) and have added a bit of Cosmic Shimmer glitter paint.
