My Second ATC

I finished my second Artist Trading Card (ATC) last night. This one could be embellished further with some pearl beads, but since I don't have any, I'll leave it as is.

The face is made from flesh coloured cotton printed with a subtle and delicate floral design. It adds some interest and texture to the face.

I have two more cards to make for the swap that I am taking part in and I'd like to get them done and mailed well before the November 26th deadline.

My artist friend, J and I are also doing a private swap. Same theme - faces. J is super talented and with her permission, I will post her creations here when I receive them.

I was hoping not to have to buy any more materials and equipment for a while. Drawing on such a tiny scale is difficult. In order to produce the results I want, I really need some more fine point fabric pens in a variety of colours. My sister lives near a Michaels craft store and I will be visiting her tomorrow. Maybe if I'm real nice, she will stop there before we go about our other business. 8-)
