Christmas ATC's






Participated in Drawspace's December trade with a theme of Winter/Christmas. Gotta do something to keep my brushes from dry rotting during this time of year while there's so much going on!

Each card is 2.5" x 3.5".

Had a lot of fun with these...  I used Hot Press watercolor paper for the first time, and did the cards in pen and ink and watercolor. I really liked the super smooth surface of the hot press paper. Love experimenting with art supplies!

They are fun, cheerful, vibrant and Christmassy ... now can you do the same for me please :-)


Seriously, these are lovely. I still haven't quite made time to hang decorations/cards/tree etc ... but sure it will all come together on Christmas Eve!!

These are wonderful, Teresa! Hot pressed w/c paper is my favorite also - just seems easier to work with. However, sometimes I like the texture that rough paper gives. Have fun experimenting & post your results as these look great!

These are lovely. I haven't made ATC's in quite some time. I love working in small format. Happy New Year!
