Masquerade ATC Swap

Nothing like a good swap to get you in the Halloween mood. There is a part of me that has always liked that "dark" mood. It's nice to take something so feminine like Marie Antoinette, and make her "dark". I think if I had to pick between a fru fru Marie gown or a gold threaded black gown, I would go with the black. And of course I would have my black cat Coco in tow.

This shows the back side of my ATCs. They had to show Marie with her dark side as well.

The crow on this card is actually placed on twice to create a 3D effect. You know me, I love to layer paper.

This shows Marie's layered masquerade mask. How fun it would be to dress in a gown, have an elaborate mask, and attend a masquerade ball. We just don't live like they used to.

The card above and below have layered wings so that Marie can fly off into the full moon.

Thanks to Cassandra for hosting yet another amazing swap. I hope everyone who receives one of my cards will like it for many moons.
