ATC Exchange

I'm participating in a new ATC exchange. The theme for this month was a free choice which I find more difficult than a set theme. What to do, what to do? Too many choices.

I'm not sure where the idea for this card came from, but it's close to being a self-portrait. Black bear is my animal totem and usually how I am first thing in the morning until I've had that first civilizing cup of tea.

The watercolor/plastic wrap background was done on Canson Mi Tientes and the clipart images were printed out, glued on and then a coat of Mod Podge. Before the caption was added, I proudly showed my card to The Eldest. She looked at the card, announced "I don't get it", and mumbled "The Emperor is naked." ROTFL That puts the ego into perspective. The caption was added using Ziller's Glossy Black and a Gillotte 1068A


  1. The that "elder" generation... I got it instantly! Nice job... As if you would do anything less than awesome!

  2. LOL, I got it too, but isn't she a wit? LOL
