image swap card

 

I made this card this fall for a same image swap. How it works is that each person who signs up is sent the same basic stamped image to work with (in this case, the brown flower image stamped on white paper), then we make our cards, send it to our assigned partner, then post them online for all to see. It's really fun to see how each person will have a different creative take on the same item.
I colored in the image with colored pencils and blended them with odorless mineral spirits. I also used a bit of alcohol markers for accents and for the background (notice the brick-looking background).

I liked it so much I made this card as a bday card for my mom with the extra image that was sent. Thanks for stopping by today!

Wow - great cards! I love all the "extras" - like the butterfly flower centers and the "sparklies" and the great background. Awesome, Adelle! How did your card-making class go?
