Artful ATCs

A wonderful lady in our local ATC swap group sent envelopes stuffed full of papers and fun stuff to any of us that wanted one... our only requirement was to make one atc using at least one thing from the envelope and the word artful of which she included sheets of the word in many different fonts.  I couldn't stop with just one and so far have made 6 artful atcs.  All paper used in these atcs (except the collage images, bird, and extra words to go with artful) are from the envelope... I've used some of the papers as they came and others I've added stamping, inking, painting and also have torn pieces and layered things... even the corrugated cardboard came from the envelope, I sprayed it with color wash and perfect pearls mists.  All the collage images I used are from the Collage Stuff sheet Crazy for Kids.  Other things I've added are flowers, pearls, charms, Victorian scrap (bird and butterfly), German scrap, gems, etc.

All your atc's are gorgeous. They envelope project sounds fun. I just don't understand when a chipboard base is used, how to finish the edges. Do you distress them with ink? Sand them?
