I colored the hearts on a separate sheet with oil pastels, then rubbed tissue paper over it.  The tissue picked up the color, then I fixed the tissue onto a new postcard with gel medium and added a few things here and there.  You can't tell it here, but it came out with an almost encaustic appearance.  Anyway, just an experiment.

On a roll ...

I was on a roll with the Glimmer Mists on these two ATC's ...

I used India ink and a bamboo "pen" to make these flowers.
I like working with ink - it can be so dramatic.

"Paper Towel Art"

Have you ever used a paper towel to clean up paint or other color mediums and found that the paper towel looked beautiful afterward?  These three ATC's were made with bits of paper towel that had of teal, purple and green Glimmer Mist on them!
