These two cards have been made by Pauline Mackenzie the top one 'Painted Card' and the bottom "Textured Landscape" Both cards have painted background and Pauline's 'Painted Card' also has painted puff paint for texture.
These two cards are from different groups, I really should not have scanned them together but I was getting tired and wanted my supper. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
The top card is really something, click on it to enlarge it and have a look how creative Miki Rodriquez is. She lives in Arizon and decided to create her set of cards based on the landscape near her home over a 24 hour period. Each of the swappers got a different time frame. Mine was 12:00am and represents "drizzle" with cacti, insects and tumbleweed. I hope the other swappers post photos of their cards I'd love to see the set together.
The second card is from Alice Gray and is also very creative. It represents the "Simmer Dim" , the standing stones in Orkney when the stars come out but it never gets really dark.
Another Summer Solstice card but this one represent the orbit round earth at the time of the solstice.
This cards by Avril.
Two more "Coast" cards this time from Cindy Mott and Carol Jamieson. Cindy shows the sunset over the sea and Carol has been very inventive with bits and pieces. This is another card worthy of a closer look.
Now for my "Painted Card" set. I'm really not an artist but I did enjoy creating the tangled landscapes.
