Happy Monday!  As you may have noticed from the previous two posts, the Project Parade for this month is all about ATCs!  I love doing ATCs because it is so much fun to see how much creativity you can pack into such a small space.  When I started doing this ATC, I knew that I wanted to incorporate a lot of texture and depth.  To accomplish this goal I used several different products.  For the main panel, I cut and embossed a circle using Nestabilities dies.  I then stamped the floral image twice and colored and outlined it with Copic markers.  The butterfly is mounted on dimensionals and is colored with Copic markers and topped with Niji Pearlesent Watercolors (very fun product).  For the Kiwi Kiss panel, I embossed it with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I then used the SU! Ticket Corner Punch on the corners, so that I could add brads.
Wanna win $15 to spend in the Verve Store
