Hot, Hot, Hot


This weeks Created Byhand Challenge either on the blog or the forum is Hot, Hot, Hot or you could just use the color Yellow.  For Hot my mind went to bright, hot colors and I used a piece of Doodlebug flocked paper in a very bright pink for the background of this atc.  The collage image and "heart" rubber stamp are both from Quietfire Design.  I cut out the collage image and added gold Paint Dabber around the edges of the image and the edges of the background.  I also colored a scrap piece of screen (it came from the edge of the roll where the wires are looped back) with the gold Dabber.  A piece of white silk ribbon (also available from Quietfire) is on top of the screen.  The wire and beads nest I did quite some time ago and hadn't yet used it on anything.... to add to it I punched 2 flowers from old music paper, colored them with Distress Ink antique linen, scrunched them up and used them under the wire nest.  "heart" is stamped on an edge of the old music paper, torn out, and sponged around the edges with antique linen.
