FwATCs #80

Hey blogger friends,

well, here I am at 12:15 a.m. trying to get my submission for Fun with ATCs in under the wire. I've had a difficult time getting a decent pic of this ATC, which is a piece of rumpled tin foil attached to a chipboard base. The foil was stained with alcohol inks and distress stains to give a rusting appearance. On this I've stamped flourishes in archival jet black. The edges were inked with mowed lawn d.i. and a bit of distress stickles/pewter to mimic moss. My flourish/flower was cut with an old sizzix die from journal paper colored with distress stains and smeared with a bit of distress metallic stain. The dew drop centers are held in with black stickles. the word banner was cut from the dictionary and highlights the meaning of the word 'flourish'. a small dragonfly and some metal flakes were added to the flowers. I'm entering this in

  8. Wow, this is so pretty with the flowers and the little dragonfly, but if you don't do this sort of thing, it is amazing the amount of violence that goes into this style of art! I had visions of you, Nan, crumpling and hammering and distressing and cutting and smearing!! LOL!
