Fancy a swap?

The new challenge goes live at One Stitch at a Time today and the theme is a perennial favourite - Anything Goes! :)
 
For my project this week, I decided to do something different and not do a card... my inspiration came from the gorgeous image I was given to work with - Godshill by Ike's Art:
 
 
 
I loved this little village scene so much and I decided to have a play about with colouring it with different mediums - so I made a set of 4 ATCs, each coloured with a different medium. Isn't it amazing the different effect you get just from changing the medium/way you colour an image?
 
Here's a close up of the individual cards and the mediums used to colour them:
 
Promarkers
Distress Markers
Watercolour pencils (dry)
Watercolour pencils (painted with)
It's easy to enter the One Stitch at a Time challenge - just make your project (it can be anything cos Anything Goes! :D), post it to your blog, or other online gallery, and then link your entry up at the One Stitch at a Time blog. You can enter without using a Stitchy Bear product and will be entered into a draw to win a $3 gift voucher for the Stitchy Bear store. If you enter using a Stitchy Bear product, you'll be entered into the draw to win this month's fabulous collab of digi stamps and papers from Stitchy Bear:
 
 
I'm also going to swap these ATCs. If you've never made ATCs before, they are a lot of fun. You can use any medium you like - stamps, digi stamps, paints, doodling, hand-drawing, mixed media, collage, anything you can think of! The only rules for these little mini pieces of art are the size - they must be 3.5" x 2.5" - and that they cannot be sold, only traded or given away.

This is fabulous, Ali! I love how different the same scene is depending on how it was coloured - but all four are stunning!
