It's Shery's birthday today, and Maria has highjacked the Inspiration Post for the celebrations and linky party.
Here is me sending .....
... with a little ATC, my first one ever. It is winging its way over to you, Shery, across the Atlantic as we speak ...
Here is a little bit more about the process ...
Cover a piece of cardboard (ATC size 2 1/2" x 3 1/2") with pretty paper, distress edges distressed edges and apply some paint to mute the colour and add texture. I used some I had for ages giving the appearance of handmade paper. Not sure if it was still ok as it had shrunk in volume inside the unopened jar despite never having been used, but it gave some interesting texture anyway. I then applied a little Picked Raspberry distress ink to finish off my ATC base.
Next I stamped, embossed and fuzzy cut the bird seen in the video below ...
... and finished the ATC ...
... and added a touch of spritzing just for fun.
I am entering my ATC at:
