Pink Rolodex swap

This is my contribution to the byhandartists group's pink rolodex swap. I painted watercolor paper with Lumiere's halo gold pink paint. On the front I stamped an asian background stamp with Versafine Black ink and attached a pink fiber "ribbon" pushed a bit through a Chinese coin. The larger coins are attached with mounting squares, the smaller ones on some are attached with gel medium. The back is a crow brass stencil by Dreamweaver, that I got from Quietfire Design,that I outlined with micron pen and then painted in with larger black pen. The quote is from Quietfire Design and one I go to over and over again, stamped with Black Versafine ink.

October Yalpha

Wow, it has been a busy 3 months. I can't believe I haven't posted a thing. This is the mingle I did for the byhandartists yahoogroup for October. I like this fun owl and wanted to use him for an October theme and decided a moon could be the "o".
I used patterned paper that I folded for the front and back. I cut out two circles, one from the orange and one a half inch smaller from yellow. I edged them with embossing ink and embossed with Pirate Gold. I stamped the owl with embossing ink and used Detail Black EP. The owl stamp is from Inkadinkado. I glued the larger one onto the paper and the smaller I mounted with mounting tape to pop it up a bit.
The back atc is orange paper with the same little owl and alpha letters by Martha Stewart I got on sale after halloween last year. I used gold photo corners to hold it. Simple, but I like the overall look.
