Artist Trading Cards...

 
 This is a peacock Artist Trading Card I made. It is on wood and is wood burned. I then used pencils, pens and liquid silver to color it in, I like how it turned out!

  

 This is my Pop Art Chicken Artist Trading Card. They are hand drawn and then I used oil pastels, pens, markers, pencils and paint to color it.

  

 I entitled this Artist Trading Card "Study of Red". I used paint, oil pastels, ink. thread and maple leaves to make this one. I feel like something is still missing on the piece. It is for a SWAP, and it has to be red. Any suggestions?

Nice stuff, Missy!

One the red card - seems perfect the way it is. No idea what could be added.

I love the peacock ATC, it's just beautiful! As for the red I think it looks great to and can't think of any thing to add. It looks natural as is.

They're all lovely. My suggestion for the red card if you want to jazz it up -- something sparkly (beads, ribbon, glitter, whatever). Could be a nice contrast to the naturalness of the leaves too. Of course, bear in mind that I'm no artist. Perhaps that is obvious.

Different techniques!
The red card is pretty the way it is, but if you want to add something maybe some swirls, like wind, or maybe you can find something else from the yard - small flat twig (if it would stayed glued), but I do not think the card really needs a thing.

Beautiful! I especially like the red maple leaves! :0)
I would add some gold corner embellishments. But then that would go against the red theme....
{Guess I wasn't much help.)

Love your art, Beautiful work!
Maybe some gold leafing on the edges of the red leaf card but I think it is great the way it is.
