Zodiac Series ATC #1 – Capricorn

My best friend is a Capricorn so I really enjoyed doing this ATC and learning about her sign. I sent it off this morning to Christchurch, New Zealand.
In preparation for making this card, I consulted my copy of Parker’s Astrology and searched for images on-line. According to Parker’s, the Capricorn sign is related to silver, birch trees (among others), and ivy. These served as the inspiration and design elements of my card.

I’ve been doing so many ATCs with traditional portrait orientation, I decided this series would be different and will be doing all landscape. First I used watercolor crayons and twinkling H2O in blues for the water. Next I layered the images on top. The tree grove image is from a brochure I have on Utah. Lastly I applied the ivy stickers (yes, stickers) and wrote the symbol in silver metallic ink. The whole card is sealed with my fav, Mod Podge.
