I had the pleasure of participating in the ARTchix Studio Blue ATC swap. I was really happy to see Helga announce this swap as I knew very well that a deadline would nudge me to create (and it did!) Of course time got away from me and everything was sent in on the last possible (deadline) day . . . but on the positive side, I did accomplish making them. The idea was simple: Make 6 Artist Trading Cards using the color blue and use an ARTchix Studio item on each ATC.
I used ARtchix ART blast playing cards as a base, the ones with birds printed on them.
I started with watercolor crayons around the edges in shades of blue.
Then wet the crayon marks (watercolor) and spread the color around . . .
