These ATCs are for a Butterfly themed Asian swap I'm entering. The backgrounds are from spare card produced, after going mad blasting alcohol Inks with an air duster last week. Once I start playing with that I can't stop as it's such good fun and so I end up with a stash of lovely spare cards ready to use for projects. I cut out the butterflies and raised up just the tops of their wings with sticky pads. My Tim Holtz book arrived today far quicker than expected along with all the art materials that were offered with it. Good service from QVC. I'm really pleased with the offer after an initial quick flip through it and will enjoy reading it fully. I love the Distress Stickles clear Rock Candy and I used it on the butterfly wings. Although it doesn't show up in the picture it gives a lovely subtle crystal glaze which I think I'll use often.
These letters will spell the names of my three little grand daughters. I coloured them with embossing inks of various shades, carefully dropping and mixing small amounts of powder onto the heated letters, and love the finished effect. I haven't yet decided what to make from them. Maybe door names with each letter on a small tag. I just got carried away decorating them all.
