ATC Tuesdays, #2!

Hey ya'll!! Welcome to my 2nd installment of ATC Tuesdays! I was tickled to death to have one of you play along with me...Colleen's ATC was just gorgeous! Here is what I will be making today:

I discovered the Spellbinders Labels 18 die, the 2nd from the largest, its almost just the exact size of an ATC! And I had gotten some of the label in Nestaboard from Want2Scrap, so used this as my base:

Here I have painted the larger piece with Distress Crackle Paint in Vintage Photo, and also painted the next size down with white acrylic paint.

After drying, I stamped on the white piece with distress inks.

Here I have sponged the edges with some Vintage Photo distress inks.

Here I have punched a hole with the crop-a-dile for adding ribbon later.

Added some Nestabling, also from Want2scrap.

Stamped the butterflies with versamark ink then embossed with gold embossing powders.

Colored with Prisma colored Pencils and smudged with my fingers...this gives it a bit softer look.

Cut out the butterflies.

Used markers on the sentiment because I only wanted certain parts of the sentiment to put on my ATC. I then cut out the sentiment I had stamped and sponged those edges too with Vintage Photo distress inks....yes, I go through ALOT of Vintage Photo ink, lol!

TADA!! This is my ATC all assembled! I attached some green tulle behind the white panel...tied some seam binding ribbon through the hole. I decided not to use the big butterfly because it just way to big for this, but saved it to use another time! :D Here is a picture of how it looks in the tray:

And guess what? YOU can win this ATC! I decided to put it in the Fan Mail over on StampTV! Plus there are more awesome creations that you could win too by playing along in our Weekly Fan Mail...check it out! Just click on the link below:

Oh my word, this is super creative and gorgeous! Thanks for the inspiration, Cat. I'll have to make do without the crackle paint, though.
