Friends ATC


Both the background and bird image on this atc come from a little book of papers called Winged Things A.T.C. Collection.  I received this cool little atc sized paper collection from my good friend, Tea in Norway (thanks, Tea!!).  I added a strip of text paper and then rock candy Distress Stickles onto the background.  The bird image was torn out and distress inks rubbed on the edges.  German scrap at the top and bottom.  The friends sticker (in a sheet also received from Tea) is layered on a piece of black cardstock... then I decided the black was too dark and rubbed on a little Adirondack snow cap pigment ink to tone it down.  Little dots around edge of bird image made with Glaze pen.  Glossy accents added to the center of the flowers.  After attaching the image to the card I went around it with a black sketch pencil rubbing to blend a little to give depth.  Red twine to finish it off.

sorry for being so late in commenting this. You know why;-). But can I just say that it is a treasure? And a true testament to you living by the device give and you shall receive. I am now the very proud owner of this art piece. Thanks a lot. Tea
