ATC's for remembering Christchurch

Recently I took part in an ATC swap, run through Birds of A Feather.
I thought you may like to check the cards out, the theme was Remember Christchurch and the colour theme was black and Red (Canterbury colours, of course)

This simple, yet stunning card was created by Ann and is a wonderful clear reminder of the Earthquake that struck Christchurch.

 Carol used a very clever transfer technique to create 'Rise Up'

Danice made her ATC's all a little different, below are some of her wonderful cards.

Kathy, was also super creative and has more than one design of card as well, each one is stunning.

Lainie's Gothic shape represents the ChCh Cathedral and the flowers, the garden city.

Nicki's lovely card says..."Let hope rise, Rise within you, Fill with morning light".

Robyn has created this 3D type master piece

Sandra, who experienced the quake first hand has replicated the 'shaking' so very well.

 I was amazed by the many, many people who pitched in and got behind Chch in its time of need, so my card is titled "lending a hand to Christchurch. My quote says   Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.

Over at Birds of a Feather we have another ATC swap on the go, we would love for you to join in, details can be found HERE

The ATCs are just amazing Sonya. So many clever creations from super talented artists and a great tribute to Christchurch.

Those cards are amazing and so moving, they really capture the whole sense of what's happened.
Thanks for sharing.

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
