Created Byhand Challenge

This weeks Created Byhand Challenge (forum or blog) is Looking In...Looking Out or Use Dies.  My atc uses a Spellbinders circle die.  I cut the circle out of a piece of shiny white cardboard like you'd find in a shirt package or something like that.  We got a whole box of the cardboard at a garage sale for a couple of dollars.  After the circle was cut I layed it on a kraft ATC blank and then trimmed the sides off to fit the atc.  The atc blank is colored with Distress Ink Victorian Velvet (love this color) with a little brushed corduroy around the edges.  On the trimmed circle I stamped the small butterfly with Ranger's resist ink, let it dry a minute and then using a blending tool rubbed on Distress Ink wild honey and victorian velvet... buffed off the extra ink with a napkin and then edged the piece with brushed corduroy.  Stamped the quote with Archival Ink jet black.  Stamped a small butterfly on a scrap of white cardstock using victorian velvet, cut it out, and added sticky back pearls to the body.  Also added pearls to the corners of the atc.

Very pretty Wanda. I like the resist ink look, another thing I'd like to try. My quote sure looks good on your ATC and of course Suzzane's lettering to make the stamp makes all words look better.

As always Wanda this is great. What I noted and enjoyed was the feeling of movement that you created with the off-the-page circle. Thanks for sharing.

Great piece Wanda. Isn't is nice to recycle something and turn it into beautiful art! I am loving the Victorian Velvet color myself and using it a lot.

Hello Donna,

I like the big circle : It looks like the moon where the butterfly is heading to ! So, this quote is perfect :)

I like how you used the circle, even if you trimmed it, my eyes and my mind completes it in a circle.
