Butterfly ATCs for Saturday Surprise, plus a little French Flavor ATC

A couple of little ATCs for the Saturday Surprise challenge, which is Butterflies.



This first one is actually a shaker card that I made a few months ago. The clipart butterfly and the stamped green foliage and text are on the back panel, and the blue floral image is stamped with StazOn on the acetate covering. Inside (as the things that actually move when shaken) are blue and green microbeads, blue butterfly confetti (which is sort of sparkling in the pic), and a punched butterfly with the word "dream" cut from an old book.



For this next one, I stamped the butterfly images first, then overlayed a K and Co. sticker. I penned in some additional text around the stamped butterfly, then mounted the panel onto text. I used inks, acrylic paints, and markers to distress and color, then added some picture fasteners.



One last ATC, a late addition for the Created Byhand challenge this week, which was "French." I used Ranger's distress embossing powder for the Eiffel Tower... this stuff is interesting, in that it gives a sandy finish, rather than a glossy one. The little plane is from Limited Edition.


Wow, thanks for sticking with me! I've got some family in town, so I'd better go socialize!! Have a great weekend!
