Twilight Masquerade At Versailles





I have journeyed to Versailles once again for a twilight masquerade. The Queen is on her balcony, behind a mysterious buliding, guarded by a glass glittered swan! These ATCS are triptychs and are for the Birds of a Feather Swap over at the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group on Ning.
They are watercolor with pen and ink, digital image printed on acetate and a watercolor glass glittered swan for the outer panel. Each card is the same yet different, featuring different color schemes, different dresses for Marie and different digital out building pics. I wish I could really go to Versailles for a twilight Masquerade party and slip back in time to see the Queen herself dance a minuet!

this is very intriguing! I've never made atc's that had so many things that 'worked'! Brava!

... and just your description is more beautiful and evocative than most art work itself is!
