ATC cards

Making hand colored paper for my zentangle inspired artwork has become my new passion. When I cut my hand colored paper up I usually have a few ends left over. When I realized I had just enough left over for artist trading cards (ATCs), I got busy. The ones pictured above are just the start of what will become many more.

I hand colored them with artist grade watercolor paints using a wet into wet technique. The tangles were done with colored Micron pens and shaded with coordinating Prismacolor colored pencils.


  1. Lovely cards! I will have to read your blog further to see how you colored the paper. I like how you used the same color pen as the paper. Very Nice. What pens did you use and what did you use to shade the cards? Thank you for posting this.

  2. Using the colored Microns and Prismacolor pencils is brilliant. These are lovely.

  3. Those are really quite lovely, Sue.
