ATCs: Five

To commemorate the beginning of the 5th Year of my ATC swaps, the January theme was "Five" (or "5," if you prefer). It was like Christmas all over again opening the envelopes containing these Fabulous Fives!

In true ATC (Artist Trading Card) fashion, there was a plethora of mediums (markers, paint, pen and ink, colored pencils, yarn, thread...) and techniques (drawing, painting, collage, weaving, felting, assemblage, mixed media...) used to create the cards this month. "Take five..." and take a look...
"Five is Green and nestles in Zentangles"
"5" A Magic and Mystical Pentagram.
The upward point is the Spirit.
The other points represent Earth, Air, Fire and Water.

Notice the hand quilted number 5.
"Five (by Five)"
Originally, using a hand print, this was a Valentine.
