First ATC of February: Into the Abyss...

Doesn't that sound a little menacing (or exciting or adventurous)?  I love the sound of 'into the abyss' (probably because I used to go scuba diving a lot).  I made this for a SwapBot ATC swap with a masking tape technique theme. 

I had this big ol' green mixed media panel sitting on my desk and cut up part of it for the background.  Thinking the masking tape might rip the background I de-stickified it by taping it to my arm a couple of times (art & exfoliation all in one step!).  I like that you can still see the background through the blue paint I added over the tape.  I sprayed some green shimmery mist over the whole surface, too, but this is hard to pick up with the camera.

The diver is lifted off the background with some foam tape for a little extra somethin', somethin'. 

The person I'm sending this to likes steampunk style so I'm hoping this fits the bill. 

As luck would have it, this card fits right in with the VLVS monthly inspiration pic, don't you think?  (Think 'under the sea'...)

Cheers and have a great weekend!
