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.
