For ATC’S sake… 9 and 10 (cheat)

OK today’s atcs are a slight cheat as I actually made them on Christmas Eve.  

They are pieces made from the Artful Days goodie box super sale box. Julie asked me to make some things using the bits from this packed box … well I was spoilt for choice so started small and here are my ATC’S with the theme of butterflies/moths.

I used Distress ink onto a gesso piece of scrap cardstock  (packaging from a magazine stamp set) and added some of the patterned tissue paper (think this may be ranger paper but unsure). 

I used a mixture of the ink from my pads and the distress ink pen within the Artful Days box. 

Once this had dried I added a little bit of my favourite paint… art alchemy opal magic … just to add some sheen to the piece.  Then I added the embellishments of the flowers and pearls and a sticker from my stash. 

This was made in much the same way except I added a fabric butterfly and added ink to that to add definition and then the cute little metal flowers. The sticker came from my own stash.  

This is probably only using about 1% of the box that Julie sent me… it is packed beyond belief with beautiful items that can be used in so many ways. Looking forward to digging in and creating more when I have a bit more time on my hands.  

Happy crafting!
