Man flu ATC's

I have a dose of 'man flu' so feeling rough - but as I am a woman - it doesn't hold me back from doing anything-providing I have a full box of tissues by my side.

I haven't made any ATCs for ages, so when I saw a swap on Katy's Corner forum, I thought it was just the 'thing' to do when you have a fuzzy head! The theme is colours

These look much better in real life - they haven't scanned well - bad 'workman' blaming the tools again!

The abstract blues and creams give the feel of water and the surrounding hills.

Miss Brambles here is coloured in shades of blackberry juice - not the actual juice - inks and Promarkers. I gave her a bit of a lift with white bramble flowers in her hair. She looks brighter and more vibrant IRL and the different shades far more contrasting and noticeable.

Shades of orange distress inks for the background - stamped in cocoa brown, and highlighted with orange Promarker - again looks much better in the hand - you can see the different shades of light and dark and contrasts so much better

I did this one in a fuzzy day dream state. Thinking of sunny days, and shoals of fishes swimming upstream - and how tranquil and peaceful it all would be.

Well that is my five for the swap - off to see what the postman has brought this afternoon.

Thanks for looking

(And I did cover my face every time I sneezed so you won't catch a cold!)

Poor you, Lottie. Hope you soon feel better. I'm just recovering from a bad cold myself.

Great ATCs - love the Bird cage image, too - I have that one. Your colours are lovely and really varied.

Lottie, i love all of these, they are all gorgeous, i agree about the abstract backgrounds giving the illusion of lanscape and it works well on the fish one too. I love the autumn lady and the bramble lady and now i am so jealous as you have just the best stamps ever !!! lol. Beautiful work as always my friend and thanks for the lovely words at arty retreat
