New Artist Trading Cards

Hello, everyone!  I hope you are having a good weekend.  I finished some cards and thought I'd share them with you...

The first one is titled "Earring Girl 2".  She didn't scan so well because her earring is somewhat thick.  I used pen, watercolor and colored pencils on a textured card.

The next card is "Rooster."  I made it for someone who collects rooster ATCs.  I am so happy that she likes it.  She even said she would frame it and put it in her kitchen!  Awww!

Here is a card called "Black Haired Senorita."  I made it by cutting out a ballpen sketch I made.  I pasted it unto a piece of junk mail card cut to the right ATC size (2 1/2 by 3 1/2 inches).  Then, I gave it a light coating of gesso, and colored it with watercolor and colored pencils.  I made a tutorial about this technique in case you're interested.


This next card is called "Ineng."  Ineng is a name you call a young girl in Filipino when you don't know her name.  I used the same technique as the previous card.

The last card is another bird card, "Jay."  This is another card I drew using my son's book as a guide.  Again, here, I used the low cost wall putty that you buy in the hardware store.  See the texture that comes out when you rub the colored pencils on to the card?

Hope you like the new cards!
