In the (Artist’s Trading Cards) ATC Swap Group this month, our theme was “A Paler Shade of White”.
Why, yes, its a spin off from the song, “A Whiter Shade of Pale“. So Retro- Vintage here! Check out the outfits in this video!
Our group seems to enjoy the color themes, many of us, including myself, liked the idea of white this time around and yet struggled to incorporate that idea into our art.
Considering that I’m one of the moderator’s and hosted this month’s idea, I think that’s kind of funny 🙂
What I had in my mind was that vintage white you get when its been around a while and started to yellow, and that pearl white of old shirt buttons. I took me longer to gather materials than it took me to make the cards.
In this one, I love that I was able to mirror the pearl button and tiny safety pin in the picture.
A Paler Shade of White was certainly a fun challenge! Next up, “Aubergine” which also reminds me of a song… by Bruce Cockburn? I can’t remember…
