Birds That Imagine, Create, Live


I glued a piece of book page to a white atc blank.  Along each edge I pulled the book page back tearing it along the edge of the cardstock.  Sprayed the piece with Stamp Zia color wash.  Stamped a Dylusions border image along each side.  Added white pen marks in with the stamping.  Brushed white paint along the edges.  The bird image (Hampton Art) is stamped with Archival Ink jet black onto a leftover scrap of a piece of sprayed/stenciled paper.  After gluing it onto the atc I used a white pen around the edge so I'm actually writing onto the background and a black pen for stitching up on the bird piece.  A piece of yellow string tied around the bottom.  Glitter gems in the center of the flowers.  image, create, and live are all cut from the Tim's Words to Say.

Great atc !! I like the background you did. It just "pops" the bird out.
