Swallow and Altered Rolodex Wheel [WOYWW144]

Well I am just starting my tag for TAG TUESDAY (thankfully we can post up until next Tuesday), and so I decided to show that but then I noticed my beloved rolodex art wheel which contains altered rolodex cards. It is time for me to be making a new batch of cards so I can swap again and get a new flush of art cards to put into my wheel.
Here I have traced the outline of the swallow and transferred it to my art paper. About half the time I draw the image by my own hand, and half the time I use the transfer process (for partial images or the entire image, depending). For this design I transferred the entire outline as my tag design requires an exact crisp edge.

Here is my altered rolodex art wheel in situ.

Flip the art card and you see this:

Another flip and you will see this:

  1. How fun is that rolodex, going to have to get me one of those to play with if only for daily eye candy inspiration. xox Corrine

  2. Corrine! I would love to swap with you if you are interested in doing a swap. The size of card I trade is 2.25" X 4". There are different size of cards and different size and styles of holders for the cards. The 2.25"X4" size card will fit my holder so that is the size I swap. *smiles* Norma

    Happiness to all.
