Butterfly basics, Forever Young, fresco finish paints, Paperartsy, Serene Silhouettes

For ATC’S sake … 64 (who can’t see that number without singing?)

I have a single ATC to share today. 

I grabbed a piece of paper that had some brayered paint on it and cut it down to a little smaller than ATC size as I wanted to mount it onto some silvered cardstock I had found. For once I had a bit of a plan before I started on this one! 

I stamped some silhouette flowers and leaves onto the pink and blue background using black gesso.  As you can see I made a bit of a stamping faux pas and also caught the edge of the rubber in one impression but I knew it wouldn’t matter as the quote would go over the top of that and cover it up! 

I also edged the piece with the black gesso.

Next I used a Seth Apter stamp and cut out the quote I wanted. I then positioned and added the quote with Matt medium.

Then I flicked silver paint over it.

I love that this worked out like it had in my head. Unusual for that to happen for me as I usually just go with the flow and rarely plan.  

Another one in this challenge of 365 in 2017! 352 to go!

Happy crafting !
