Inspire Me Thursday -- ATCs

I love crows and this image that I took of a crow outside my bedroom window has been a constant in my work for months. I used the tape transfer method to create a transparent image which I then adhered to the surface using a matte medium.

I love the deepness... the black frond-like wispies...and the night blue... so mysterious!

Laura said...

Great how you were able to achieve those intense blue shades so well and that wonderful scratchy texture. Love this, very Poe-ish.

I'm cranky with the crows in my garden at the moment (theyre trying to eat the possums) but this makes me feel a little warmer to them. Nice work.

To me your card looks like a reflection a crow would cast into a deep blue pond or a smooth stone with the image of the crow fossilized onto it. Thanks for the images kt

Love the colors you used and the way they blend together. I think crows are a lot of fun : )

I agree it does have a mysterious feel. I also like this with the round edges. Keep up the good work.

I love your atc-the sublety of the crow is beautiful. Just as I am writing this crows are cawing outside my window. Thanks for the kind comment on my atc post. It prompted me to explore your blog-which I really enjoyed. Your Random Passage photos are amazing-I'd love to take a walk there. Thanks again for sharing.
