"Blue" ATC Swap

The ATC Art Technique group is having a series of color-themed swaps, beginning with blue. Just finished my first 2 cards for this, still have 2 more to make :)

'Magical Boy Blue' began with sanded background paper from SEI, then painted over with blue color glaze. Pastel pencils were added and sealed with Krylon Matte. The stamp says 'those who do not believe will never find it' and is from 3 Bugs in a Rug; stamped with Azure StazOn. Collage image from Lisa's Altered Art. Edged in copper marker and jeweled with gems from Michael's value pack.

'Blue Boy Fairy' began with background paper from 7 gypsies, which was inked and color glazed in blue. I made the butterfly image the fairy is holding, intended as a self portrait of sorts. The NICE stamp is from the 3 Bugs in a Rug set, done in Azure StazOn. Pastel pencils were used below the collage image , which is from Lisa's Altered Art. Edge is embossed with Stampendous Blue Tinsel ep (LOVE this color).

Thanks for visiting and have a happy BLUE day!
