I started doing LTCs & Artist Trading Cards in August of 2008.

I hand carve rubber stamps and some of my cards will use images from those. I am a beginner in watercolor arts and some other media. All of my cards are handmade. They are not "prints".
My original watercolors are here at Art In Hand.

4 layers!


This was tough...
still not as hard as my precise 3 layer Obama in Color image but very tough!
This image and card was done for the LOST swap I hosted recently.
The image is based on the Season 3 episode called "Everyman for Himself". It is kinda hard to see the lightest layer in this scanned image but it's a bit more vivid in the originals

Dixie, that's crazy good! I love it!

Wow - great job! I sure like the ink colors you chose. I love the layered technique, but it sure uses up a lot of carving material, huh? :-)

Well done, Dixie! I have yet to try the layering - hope my results are a satisfying as yours! :o)

Thank you for the compliments :)
Yes, it takes lots of rubber to do the layers...
but i am kinda addicted to it.
This was my first 4 layer... and may be my last. LOL
