My ATC # 2

As I said before - ATCs are very addictive (which I don't mind), but most of all - fun. I am in 3 ATC swaps on Swap-bot.com for the month of September. This ATC is for Dance Series Swap#1 Ballet. Anything ballet related could be shown, and no limitation on technique - LOVE IT! In my mind - classical ballet is the ultimate symbol of beauty. I kept my card minimalistic with only two images: ballerina and the antique world map, and used the famous phrase of Dostoyevsky "The Beauty Will Save The World" (here is an interesting article illustrating this phrase)
I am having so much fun experimenting with different techniques:

Beginning of the process


Final look


It is hard to see on the final picture, but the card has tree main colors: black background, white letters and silver wash to highlight the images and distressing.

My next ATC will be "Iris" I already have an idea on what I am going to do. So fun!

Have a great day.
