I first thought I would be next in line to work on the ATC that was already started with a pencil in the top corner. Then I would send it on to an art friend to add the 3rd rendition before it was sent back to Misti Ko. But then looking at the ATC I had to work with, I had an idea . . . . I thought I would instead ask my husband Steven if he would add something to the ATC next, with the idea that I would be the third person to work on it before sending it back home. Steven said yes! Here is what he added:
He used one of my photos of the Ibis that we have seen walking around here as his inspiration for his drawing. I really love what he did! It is always great fun for me to see him draw and this was especially nice. Here's what I added after he was finished:
Of course, a little wilder! I added rubber stamping - all Claudia Rose stamps- and watercolor crayons. I just bought a new set of Lyra AquaColor last weekend. My previous set I had 8 years now, I think, and I still use them a ton! This was a really fun and quick project for me and has me thinking of other things I can do besides my traditional art swaps . . . . thank you, Misti Ko!
