Three new ATC Cards

This card is for a trade with the theme 'Cactus.'  I used a strip of sandpaper to make the desert floor.  I painted the sky and cactus with watercolors and used a copic pen for highlighting.

This card is for a lottery with the theme "The Beach."  Again, I used sandpaper!  This time for the beach sand.  I used patterned paper with watercolor highlights to piece together the ocean.  I painted the sky with watercolors.

This card was created for the Gothic Arch Challenge.  The challenge is "Numbers."  The card is titled "Hate to Wait."  This card started out as a large painting I did in watercolor class.  While working on this painting, we had fun by making up a story for the subject of the painting.  We decided her name was Crystal and she was a lady of the evening who was impatient because her 'gentleman caller' was late.  I didn't want to re-paint Crystal for this card, so I made a copy of the painting.  Dresden scrap and a bit of ribbon completed the card.
