When my mother passed away, I took back some of the artwork that I had done for her over the years.
When I was heavy into ATCs around 2009 – 2010, she liked what I was doing with scratchboard.
Scratchbord (a brand of scratchboArd) is India Ink over a white clay surface. You scratch away ink to leave white lines. I discovered Pitt Artist pens, which happen to be filled with India Ink. You could scratch away detail, color with the Pitts and then scratch more detail into the colored areas.
I had a special matboard created for some of these ATCs, and put several together for as a birthday for Mom.
Sorry for the poor photo, but I had trouble getting the shot behind the glass.
Doodlewash prompt: Snow – since all of these ATCs feature snow, I’m using them for the prompt even though I didn’t do them specifically for today.
