ATC Giveaway Time Again...

Morning Folks... tis time for my monthly ATC giveaway again... this month I have been focussing on those deeeelicious Crowded Attic papers again ... this time combining them with some lovely Distressy goodies too. To be in with a chance of winning this ATC, all you need to do is leave a comment for me here... the winner will be chosen at random and announced on Tuesday 12th April '11. And... if you leave a comment for me over on my blog, you will be entered twice! Simples (said in the Meerkat voice again lol)



The base of the ATC is mountboard so it is nice and sturdy. I layered an ATC size piece from the Crowded Attic stack and sanded the edges. I then loaded Rock Candy Cracklepaint over the top and set aside to dry. Whilst the drying was going on, I made a little 3d paper rose... there is a "how to" on my own blog HERE on how to do the flowers. So, the layers of the roses were spritzed with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mists... which are my fave mists to use... they are really subtle but give a lovely sparkle to whatever they touch. The rose was made using the medium flower on the Flower Power set.



The little ticket was cut using Tim Holtz Ticket Alterations die and then coloured with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Stains.. spritzed with Heirloom Gold too... and then popped into an Idea-ology Memo Pin. The ickle butterflies are from the Papillon Set and were stamped onto Duralar and then cut out... zapped with the heatgun and curled... and then whilst still hot, spritzed with more Heirloom Gold... this gives a lovely shimmer to them.



Finally, the flower Trim at the bottom is from Idea-ology Trims set ... a few cut to length and dabbed with Antique Linen Distress Stains... then lightly dabbed with Vintage Photo Distress Stains. The ATC base was dry now, so I spritzed this with... yep, you guessed... more Heirloom Gold... and then bobbed a bit of Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the edges... ta dah! That is all finished. Thanks for looking... have a goodly day! TTFN
