This ATC was all about me playing with textures. I started by painting the base with crackle paint (Ranger). I added a strip of copper tape at the top and then pulled out a bunch of We R Memory Keepers doodads and started pulling out pretty coppery things. Well, they coppers didn’t match the tape, so I rubbed some black ink over the tape to dull it to match. Added a Prima flower then went on a hunt for things to match the buttery yellow color. A chipboard tile (Creekbank Creations) covered in dimensional paint (spread with my finger) and then stamped with some French script (See-D’s) went into the copper frame. A touch of Magic Mesh to ground things at the bottom. The Dream eyelet originally had some blue dots I dabbed on some of the paint to cover up. Then some green twill ribbon tied through the ribbon slide. I really enjoyed making this one. All the different textures mixed with trying to keep those three colors consistent just made for a fun project.
