Collage Stuff. I haven't done many 4 by 4 swaps, but did one a few months ago over at Artchix Studio. The theme for the swap was birds and this also fits the Gingersnap Creations "Wings" challenge. I made the background by covering watercolor paper with old book pages, then applying a light layer of gesso and finally spraying dye ink sprays over masks. I'm really happy with how they turned out. I used German scrap birds and perched them on a swirly die cut. The little bird embellishment is made by layering a bird brad over a paper flower and German scrap stars. The bottom border is ribbon tape.

Gingersnap Creations. I think this color combo is very elegant. The background is polished stone, one of my favorite techniques, the flower stamp is from Flourishes, the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and I'm not sure about the swirl.

Gingersnaps Creations challenge. I don't use my pencils as much as I do my markers or H2Os. But I like how they worked on this horse ATC. Stamps are Firecracker Designs by Pamela, (horse and saying) and Impression Obsession (trees). I used a little flowersoft in the corner to mimic grass.
