ATC Challenge

I entered a challenge over at Authentic Artistry on my favorite art form - the ATC! I wanted to share my submissions. Both are digitally created and 2.5" x 3.5". They will be available on my Flickr pages for trade after the competition.

This ATC started out in color (using Paint Shop Pro) with the background and doodle supplied by Authentic Artistry in their freebie. I then added the period lady and quote. The shading was added on separate layers before converting the whole piece to sepia tone. I then curled the edge to add further age.

This ATC was made in Paint. NET. The background is from a digiscrapping page by DDiva. The images are Victorian images from Dover Publishing. Shadows were added in layers. I then used the paintbrush to make the scalloped edge.

These are both just awesome :) I especially love the sepia toned one, it's just so elegant and the other is so vibrant with that beautiful butterfly on it :) TFS!
