Lost Coast Designs ATC Challenge Georgia O'keeffe

I love creating ATCs... a small piece of art.  Today I received my Georgia O'Keeffe stamp from Lost Coast Designs for participating and winning in their January challenge. 

Georgia O'Keeffe has always been one of my favorite artists many of us know her for her southwest themed painting and larger than live flowers.  Did you know in 1939 she was commissioned by a Hawaiian pineapple company to paint promotional images.  She did 20 painting for the company. They are wonderful images of Hawaiian exotic flowers, beaches and waterfalls. I was overjoyed to see the exhibit in Hawaii while I lived there. 

One of my favorite subjects of Georgia O'Keeffe is her poppy paintings.  To honor that I found a vintage postcard with poppies. 

I stamped the image of Georgia O'Keeffe with VersaFine black ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. 

In my thousands of stamps I had a quote from Georgia O'Keeffe, " A flower touches everyone's heart." It was stamped at the top of the ATC. 

I am pleased how the poppies and leaves come through from the back of the image. 

I am entering this ATC in the

I love Georgia O'Keefe too and this is a wonderful stamped image of her. So clever to use the poppy card you found for the background. Thanks for joining the Lost Coast Desing Challenge!
