I recently participated in an Alphastamps swap. I created three ATCs on the theme of Sea Sirens and I will soon receive three from different artists in the mail. I can't wait! Here are the three I made:
I used chalk pastels for the backgrounds in all three. The mermaids were printed from a collage sheet purchased from AlphaStamps. (I had to use one of their images) I added fibers, paper shells, sequins, pearls, sea shells, brass shells, and sand to give added depth and texture. I must not forget glitter! The mermaids are adorned with some glittery accents. I really liked what I made and I'm working on a larger 5x7 version to put in my Etsy shop. I can't wait to get the swapped ATCs in the mail!
