March challenge ''finger painting backgrounds on an old book page.''

We have all at sometime or another done a bit of finger painting..... I just love getting my hands dirty with paint and so for the month of March I have chosen 'BACKGROUNDS' once again it's an open theme.

Here I took an old page from an old book I have been altering chose acrylic paints in pink, green, white and gold.
I rubbed white paint onto the page first but not covering all the words and then splodged on the other 3 colours as each colour dried so as not to end up with a pool of muddiness.

Once the page was dry I glued an Artist Trading Card blank to the page and cut round it.

All ready to create my ATC's, here I have so far completed 2 for this months challenge.
Many thanks to Chris for hosting February's challenge of 'Easel Artist Trading Cards' Once I have taken photos of the swaps I will upload them for you to see Thankyou for joining in.
From April it has been decided to add Mr Linky to the monthly challenge post allowing you to upload your ATC swaps to your blog then we can come and visit you.
Thankyou and welcome to our new people who have taken part in Chris' challenge also welcome to our new followers.
We have had alot of enquiries as to how swappers outside of the UK can cover the cost of postage for their returns and as our international swappers are growing it has been made so easy rather than send dollars etc...
On posting out your Artist Trading Card swaps you just pay the postage into my Paypal account please email me for more information....It's so simple to do It's already up and running thanks to those who have deposited your postage to cover the cost... I don't know why I didnt think of it before.
Thanks to Chris for pointing me in that direction. xxx
There will be a few changes to get the ATC swaps running as smooth as possible getting them out to you faster than they have in the past...thanks for hanging in there.
Hope that you all have a great month and look forward to seeing what you come up with.
