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.

Ancestry: Cohorts (5 layers)

This image is of my maternal grandpa William Jessero Ramsey or simply "Jess" and his cohort.
The image is 5 layers of hand carved stamps. Each color represents a different layer or stamp. The whitish streaks you see on or over the image is a reflection from the scanner lights reflecting on the glossy artist medium brushed over the entire image. I used the medium to leave deliberate brush marks and texture over the stamped image. Go to the listing at AQ to read a little about Jess the moonshiner...the man I will never stop missing... and my memories of him.
