For the ATC Trio Swap,one of the themes my partner posted was “owls,” so I decided to make 3 cards with that theme. I follow a New England Owl photography group on FB (I’m not a photographer, but I love looking at great bird photos!) and I picked out 3 photos to use as my reference images.
The first one depicts a pair of baby barred owls:
The next one is a snowy owl on the hunt:
And the last one is a great horned owl:
I love your art style! These cards are awesome!
Thank you! That means a lot! And, I appreciate your use of the word “style” because I’ve been trying to find it
The layering on these is amazing, especially the great horned owl.
Thank you! I think that one is my favorite!
You captured the owls beautifully in paper. I love the blackened edges and the free form trees and backgrounds.
Thank you! It definitely helped to have a reference photo to work from
Amazing! I love your style. Your trio of papercut owl ATCs rocks )
Thank you! It’s fun to try to break things down to the simpler elements while still making it recognizable.
You’ve certainly managed to do that! These are terrific
I love all the individual details. And the border you have each. Well done!
What a cool technique to use! I love the creativity that the ATC swap brings about and these are no exception. Your subtle shading is brilliant.
These are so beautifully done! Fabulous!
Thank you! I’ve struggled with making ATCs in the past- I don’t draw very well, and have a hard time getting collage art to look right. Somehow, papercut ATCs are hitting all the right notes for me.
… and they just look fantastic!!
