Both of these atcs were made in the last month but I just hadn't blogged them yet.

This first one uses an image from Dezinaworld, specifically from the Childrens roundies sheet.  I punched out the image with a 2 1/2" scalloped circle punch.  The background is one I'd done using crayons (you set your atc blank on a hot plate and when it's warm you color and the wax melts).  The birds are stamped on with Archival Ink jet black.  The flowers are stamped on with Adirondack pigment ink.  One who cherishes is a piece of  printed twill ribbon.  A feather, paper flower, 3 little punched flowers and sticky back gems finish it up.

This next atc uses an image from Quietfire Design - Kelly's Favorites sheet.  Pink german scrap along the top.  Dots on the sides made with the Inkssential white pen.  The leaf flourish is cut from grungepaper, inked with peeled paint, flicked with water, dried, and details added with a green pen.  Prima paper flower... Beadazzles in the centers of the flowers adhered with Glossy Accents.  "It's the little things" (A Muse Artstamps) stamped on white cardstock with jet black Archival Ink, cut out with deckle scissors, and edges colored with Distress Ink walnut stain.

Hi, Wanda. Thanks for commenting on my blog about my bird quilt. I absolutely love your bird ATCs. Would you be interested in doing a one-on-one trade of Bird ATCs?
