Women ATCs

These ATCs were created for Swap-bot's Free Theme ATC.  I started playing around with some cutouts from stencils that were painted with acrylic paints when I did the gelatin monoprints on a commercially printed floral-paisley print.  Once I laid out the cutouts I selected some women's faces from Dover's Women in Illustrations Clipart book that I had previously colored and cut out of cardstock.  I felt another element was still needed so I selected a bird themed stamp.  Each card then got a couple of finishing touches.  The top left is titled, 'North Africa', the top right, 'Pakistan' and the bottom, 'Leta and the Swan.'  I hope my swap partners enjoy them.
