It's Giveaway Time Again!

Goodly Morning... time for my monthly giveaway again. This month the giveaway is this ATC that I have made plus a pack of Idea-ology Adage Tickets. To be in with a chance to win is simples... leave a comment for me here and you will be entered into the random drawer from which a winner will be announced on August 3rd. To be in with two chances of winning... hop on over to my blog, leave me a comment on and you will be entered twice :O))


So, the ATC base is cut using the ATC Alterations die and mountboard. The mountboard was covered with Crowded Attic papers and lightly inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I added a splash of colour onto the base by smooshing my blending tool for Aged Mahogany onto the craft sheet and adding a spritz of water - this is a more subtle way of doing a Wrinkle Free Distress technique.




I made some ickle roses using the medium sized Flower Power stamp, edging them with more Vintage Photo and then some Aged Mahogany DI. The Seam Binding behind the flowers was dampened and then I rubbed more Aged Mahog onto the craft sheet and dipped the binding into it. I then dried with a heat gun and cut them to fit behind the flowers. The Adage Ticket was coloured with more Aged Mahogany and splashed with water to make little bleached droplets. Finally I cut out a couple of moths from the Crowded Attic paper and coloured them and popped them onto the butterfly on the paper with their wings up.




All of the goodies I used on this ATC are available from The Artistic Stamper. Thanks for looking! TTFN

gee Hels, I hadn't thought of smooching with just one colour, it's like doing it upside down ~ spraying the sheet instead of the card...will give that a go! great effect

This is truly beautiful! Aged Mahogany is such a great color! You did a great job making those butterflies 3-D by adding the cut-out moths.
