The one about Serenity


I finished this card last night, so this wraps up the swap I am in and I'll be sending this off tomorrow. I got mine back a couple weeks ago. I am kinda sad it's over. This card is for Ruth. I had a totally different idea in mind for this card. As I scanned it in and looked at it, I realized it looks like it is showing on her. Doh! The word serenity came to mind so I went with that. I guess I could even say her name is Serenity, huh? The illustration is awesome!! It's from a book of poetry from 1899 (wow!) that is full of these kinds of drawings! They are my favorite. I added chalk to her dress because she was looking a little pale against that background.

I love this card marilyn! I especially like the white paint spray in the background. How are you coming on the ATC swap for Twilight? I have some ideas swimming around in my mind, but haven't committed to anything yet. Something dark, definitely......
