her royal highness

here's a 2.5x3.5 atc (artist trading card)i made for a royal zetti challenge. i found the text in a vintage book: she lifted her chin with royal dignity. i really like old text and am thinking that it would be fun to find some cool phrases and create art around them. (as a rule, i make the art and then find supportive text--which can be very time-consuming!)
i also made an altered envelope that i love love love. it has alaska mountains in background and the ever-present raven in the forefront. but alas, i can't publish it because i already put my return address on it, and due to identity theft concerns, i think i'm better off being safe than sorry.
so...sorry you can't see it!

Hey, Cathy! I do my stuff the same way - first the picture and then the words. I always feel as though the art will "talk to me" and tell me a story. I'll have to try choosing words first - could be a lot of fun! Love this piece! Hugs, Terri xoxo
