ATCs! Crookshanks, orange tabby, and the letter N

I couldn't resist trading some ATCs this month. It's been a while since I've made any, but ATCs are kind of addicting. I made all these on certain requested themes and requested toucan-themed cards in return :) 
The letter "N" as part of a collection spelling out a partner's last name. I wanted a sort of zentangled look, but less fuss and clutter, so I just stuck with lines and swirls and then used watercolor to add pizzazz! 

 This one is a pet portrait of an orange tabby cat named Mayhem. I kinda loved drawing this, and it made me think about offering custom watercolor pet portraits in my Etsy shop. What do you think?
And finally, Crookshanks, for a Harry Potter animals theme. Well, I'm off to the beach! Have a splendid weekend, everyone :)

Aww... I would love watercolor portraits of my dogs. I even have a lot of rescue friends who may be interested. We're all obsessed with pets. :) I love the first card with the initial. So colorful.

You should definitely offer custom portraits! I love your style and I might not be able to afford one, but I think you would make many people happy.

The custom portrait thing is a very good idea. Especially if you start now, you'll be picking up enough speed for holiday shopping season. Now I'm off to do some ATCs. Haven't done them in a while and my scrap box needs some emptying...
