Indigo Swap - Zuzu's Forum
I remember seeing the film 'The Color Purple' and being moved by it - so this is what I was thinking of when I made this - from a stamped image Kath sent me - for which I am very grateful It took ages to colour in with watercolour pencils and gold pen, and then I went over the black areas, and coloured the white mounting surround black. The textured backing card I have stamped.
I was thinking of Zuzu, for whose forum I was making these ATCs. She is getting married today - and is wearing a gorgeous deep red corset - alas the colour scheme for this swap is Indigo. I added some texture with the different shades of purple threads, and in reality it is deeper shades of purples, and the background is inked with silver penwork by me.
The Warrior - a stamped image from my friend Kath, which I have coloured in different shades of purple.
I was try to show her strength by drawing in the 'Auras' around her!
I am not sure if these are good enough to enter - but I did have a happy four hours making them today.
