These ATC's are for a swap over on the Fiskarettes blog, the theme was fruit. The first thing that jumped to mind was Carmen Miranda... well she is my namesake after all. No, honestly, she is. My parents really thought they were comedians!
Have you ever started something and it's not gone right so done more to make it better and still not liked it so done more and more getting ever more desperate each time? That's these ATC's for me. I'm almost embarrassed to send them off but am already so late in sending. I really loved them when I went to bed last night but when I got up this morning I was just: Aaaargh!
This picture includes some mutilated butterflies and dragonflies (just for you Julia) which I made the 'fruit' with using the Cropadile.
Fluorescent markers were used for the neon backgrounds. They looked amazing when wet but look patchy now they are dry. I hope the other girls in the swap aren't to disappointed. What would you do? Would you send them?
I'm hoping by the time one of them comes home with the other ATC's I will be back to loving it again...
Ay Carumba! Indeed.
