Sometimes I just can't leave well enough alone, especially when it comes to faces. I messed with this poor girl's face way too long, till she had wonky eyes and goofy lips! So ... now she has no face at all ... maybe I'll revisit her face tomorrow. LOL

I've been wanting to try this for a while. You carve your design into a foam tray (like a carry-out container), then roll on the paint and stamp onto the paper. Not as easy as it seemed ... I need to figure out how to make it neater, but it's kinda cute I think.

For those who don't know, an ATC is an Artist Trading Card and is 2.5" x 3.5". Here are some ATC's I did for a swap - the directions were to use fabric on your ATC.
|Paint + marker on muslin|
|Alcohol inks + marker|

My son, who lives in Japan, recently visited his girlfriend Chihiro's family in Kobe. Chihiro's mother kindly sent me this large picture made by her mother of cut paper. Can you imagine?! The image is hand-cut from one piece of black paper. I am so thrilled to receive this!
This top piece is watercolor + marker. I "salted" the purple watercolor to get a different effect. The heart was done with water-soluble oil crayon - I like the graffiti-like effect you can get with those. Clearly my photography skills are lacking - sorry.
