While cleaning my studio this week, I found a bunch of ATCs from 2007 that were started but never finished. Since I’m building up a trading inventory for Art and Soul 2016 and SeARTLE, I thought I would finish them. I have grown so much since I carved this image. Waaaay back in 2004.
These were all block printed (speedycut) in 2007 and then hand altered with Inktense pencils and stamped with Tim Holtz word stamps – I used a water-based ink pad and an aquash brush to move the color around a bit for the background. The doodling and words were drawn with a fine-point waterproof pen.
