Black and White Swap on Zuzu's Forum - Artists Trading Cards

Splish, splash, splosh - well that is what it felt like with this very watery messing about playing with black and white watercolours.
But I actually like how it has turned out.

Just think all these ATC's are smaller than they appear on your screen!

This one is a black textured card for the ATC backing. I stamped the butterfly image onto tissue paper and layered it on top.

A very sticky and tricky task indeed. Thank goodness it did not entail super glue or I would have been in a real mess!

A different medium - black and white watercolours. A freehand painting, sitting in the garden relaxing by the pond. (The is the proper size 3.5 inches x 2.5 inches for an ATC - I scanned the card in though so it is on the hough but in real life it is rectangle!

It was nice just painting with two colours and not to a particular theme as such.

Textured black card onto which I glued layers of tissue paper and mounted a stamped butterfly on plain white paper.
