Oriental ATC's

I am part of a Yahoo group called About Oriental Art (AOSA). We make an ATC each month, then send them to the winner of a drawing/lottery. I won for a month, and it is a blast to receive ATC's from many talented artists from all over the world!!!

   July 2017- theme is Geisha's
 Geisha's are Art Neko/About Art Accents. I used a Gelli Plate background done in reds and yellows. I pasted on strips of Washi, and the same Washi is the background for the punched 'Good Luck' image.

June 2017 theme-Things With Wings

 The cranes/birds are Art Neko/About Art Accents.


May theme Anything Goes:


This image is by Sparkle and Sprinkle.  I stamped the floral image in Versamark ink & embossed using clear EP.  Then, I dabbed colors onto the craft mat and ran the paper through it.  I dried between layers, and love the way this ink layers- so pretty IRL!  I added a little Asian Kanji in the background. 

April 2017 theme- Chrysanthemum



Image is Art Neko/About Art Accents

March 2017 ATC theme Samurai:


 I am not sure where this unmounted image is from- lots of Copic coloring and some Washi tape for this one. 

Feb ATC- was a recipe- 1) purple, 2) hearts 3) Washi

 This is a die from Frantic Stamper and is cut out using Washi Papers. 

That catches me up to date I think!  January, I was the winner of the ATC lottery, so I did not make one- the theme was lanterns- it was a blast receiving ATC's all month long!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
