Butterfly ATC

Good morning friends,

My my I am having a very productive and fun year, creatively that is. Now to keep it going for another fifty and half more weeks! LOL

Today I have a butterfly ATC to show you. ATC #2!

This was on my desk for woyww 187 last week. The butterfly is wooden (a gift from a friend and new) that's been colored with perfect pearls powder on the wings and InkaGold paste on the flower. The ATC was covered with TH tissue wrap but I didn't like the way the grey chipboard showed through so I covered it with a thick layer of gesso then sprayed perfect pearls mists pearl and glimmer mist tattered rose on it. Added some stamping using TH reflections and small butterfly stamps. Inked only the words 'to be' from another stamp and hand cut it out. Then used glossy accents to attach the butterfly and some small flowers with leaves in the corner.

Submitting to:
Fun With ATCs challenge #78 - Something New
My new is using tissue wrap and the wooden butterfly.

Celebrate today!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous!! The colors just work so well together and I really like the shimmery background! I enjoyed reading about how you created the background.... love it when something in our minds doesn't translate quite right to paper, but then it becomes better with more layering and additions!

  5. You turned lemons into lemonade...i love posts like that. Your ATC looks fabulous.
