Red and Black ATCs

I am lucky to have the opportunity to make ATCs on a color combo theme every month with my friends Frieda OxenhamDebby Harriettha and Caryl Hoobler. This is the third year I have participated in this exchange and I so love it! For February, 2010 the color combo was Red and Black. Here is a step-by-step of how I put these together. First, play with images (ARTchix Studio=B&W images are from Flirt) and other previously rubber stamped images to get an idea of placement. Click on any photo for more details....

Add color with a red watercolor crayon:

wet it to activate it:

I found I wanted more color:

added a texture stamp in red:

ALL of the ATCs painted and stamped:

A black line and black stamping added:

I made an extra one -- here they are, all put together. 
That was fun, and red is not even a favorite color of mine!
