ATC Swap

 
                                                                                      
My friend Janice Reynolds suggested that we swap ATCs this year. I had never made one, but loved the idea of the 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" format! We decided to create cards going back to January, and to make and swap a new one each month.
Here are Janice's cards! January is called "Timeless" and February, "Valentine Wishes". Janice applies several layers of papers, images and words, adds hand painting and stamping, and finishes with a layer of beeswax. To me, the effect is very nostalgic and rich in tone. I was delighted to receive them!
