Hogwarts, Otter Feast, & Monster ATCs... And DT announcement!

 ATC time! It's been a while since I've done up some good ol' artist trading cards. I've been meaning to get back into trading them, but things are busy, busy, busy. At any rate, I have made/traded a few in the past month or so. The first is this collage "I'd rather be at hogwarts" ATC for a Harry Potter theme. Yeah, I sometimes wish I were at Hogwarts, too.
 This is an original ink/watercolor illustration of an otter having a crazy feast. I think it's the cutest thing that otters use their tummies as a floating table.... My favorite snack of his is the little squid.
"Keykeeper" from my collection at Stampotique
And finally, this one is to be traded to an artist kinda new to ATCs, so I thought I'd add a hanger to the top with eyelets and wire and beads, so she could hang it up. The quote is one of her favorites by Edgar Allen Poe: "All we see or seem, is but a dream within a dream." and the image is a rubber stamp from my collection of Stampotique Stamps!

And speaking of Stampotique, there shall be a blog hop tomorrow celebrating the new images for Feb 2012. I have 5 new ones added to my line: Old Timey Frog, Wolfie King, Gentleman Fox, Shouting Bird, and Wombat! So get ready to help me celebrate, and do some hoppage tomorrow. You'll have the chance to win some stamps :)

Oh! And happy Valentine's Day to you all! Bobby & I don't really make a big deal out of it, because we're in love every day, but hey. Chocolate will be on sale tomorrow and that's what really matters.

EDIT: AW, SNAP! How could I forget to make this announcement?! I've been invited to take my very first design team position at the Unique Crafter's Challenge Blog sponsored by Scrapbook Unique. It's going to be a great time, and you'll get to hear about some fun challenges to enter and maybe win some rad stuff :)

LOVE the ATC's. I was just thinking the other day how much I want some of your stamps.

I did a quote swap through craftsters a while ago with the same quote. I liked it then and I like it now :)

Loves the otter. He's far too cut for his own good :)
