Dream



This is an ATC I made this morning. I'm not saying who it's for in case they read it.

I started by cutting the hole in the ATC then created the background using various textured items and painted over them using a mixture of metallic paint and PVA glue which I heated to create even more texture. I added some metallic rub-ons over the top and then attached the sequin waste behind the hole.

I moulded the face and wings from Makin's clay and painted them with silver acrylic . I added silver embossing powder on the face and a bit of blue embossing powder on the wings then added a bit of Stickles. I stuck the wings and face on using silicone glue and added some beads and wire to the bottom.

Finally I added the word dream, which I stamped into three layers of silver embossing powder on a separate piece of card. I added some silver brads at the ends to make it look like it was pinned on.
