ATC - In the Garden


If the background of this atc looks familiar, you're right... it's more of that color washed paper towel... remember I took the layers apart... glued one to Clearly For Art but still had the other one and used some on this atc.  Stamped the leaves at the top with Ranger pigment ink bottle.  The collage image is from Dezinaworld - Childrens Roundies Set 1.  I punched it out with a scallop circle punch and then trimmed off the edges that hung out from the atc.  Inked around the edges of the atc with Distress Ink victorian velvet and walnut stain.  The branch is cut from grungepaper using Tim's mini branch and leaf and inked with Distress Ink.  The leaves are a Quikkutz die - it's a stem with leaves and I cut the leaves off the stem... but first I cover  the whole piece with Distress Crackle Paint, let it dry, inked over it with pigment ink to deepen the green and bring out the cracks more... makes for way cool looking leaves!!!  The bird is K&Company.  The flowers are Prima with sticky back gems in the center.
