Map theme ATC swap

My most recent group swap of ATCs was a map theme.  It was a lot of fun because it forced me to stretch outside my boundaries.  While I'm happy with the results of my cards, I think I'll stick with the style that I seem to be developing into- more of a layering, mixed media, inky, art journal sort of style LOL.

Below are the cards.  As always, the first set are the ones I received and the second set are the ones I made.

Open theme ATC swap

I recently did a swap with Connie, who I met on Facebook when she posted some pics of her beautiful art. I complimented her work and said that I wished I was one of her swap buddies and she said "let's swap" so we did. Connie's ATCs are first and mine are second.

Bird Theme ATC Swap

I've met some really neat people on Instagram and Facebook that I've had a blast swapping with. I'm starting to have some trouble keeping up lol. I wanted to make sure to share with you the beautiful treasures I've been getting in the mail.
A while back Karen and I did a 2 for 2 ATC swap with a bird theme. I had so much fun making my cards, they were very simple but I thought they turned out real pretty. And of course I was thrilled with the 2 birdies I got back. Karen's are the first two mine are the second two.

Ocean themed ATC swap

I just recently did an ATC swap with my friend Jen from Instagram. It was an ocean theme and I'm so pleased with the results, both in the card I made and received. Mine is the brownish colored card and Jen's is the beautiful blue one.
