Day Of The Moth...

...Helloooo, tis me, Hels here... I have been playing with those divinely gorgeous Paper Artsy Hot Picks today and made an ATC... which... if you would like, I will send out to one commenter - I will chose the name at random on Saturday August 14th... so, if you would like to own this, please (prettty please!) leave me a comment :O))



I started off making the ATC by covering an offcut of mountboard with an ATC size paper from the Lost & Found stack by the Duke of Distress himself, Mr Tim Holtz.  I used a combo of Distress Inks to colour the paper - Wild Honey and Forest Moss - and then stamped the birds in the hedge image a couple of times using different colour inks.  I then stamped the seed head over the top using an Olive StaZon pad.




The sentiment was popped onto another piece of mountboard and I made a little flower into which I popped a K&Co Life's Journey button.  I then stamped the lettery moth onto more Lost & Found papers, cut him out and then mounted another on top so it looks like it is just perching on the sentiment.  Finally, I tied some raffia around the ATC and attached an Idea-ology Jump Ring and Fleur De Lis for decoration.   All of the stashy bits used are available from The Stamp Attic... So... before you dash off there to have a browse... do you likey the ATC???  I hope so... don't forget, if you would like to own this, please just leave me a comment and you will be in the draw :O))  Thanks for looking... have a great day!

Hi Hels, I would like to own it, I don't have much of anyone else's art to treasure so I would love it. Great tag, love the flower and that butterfly and I have always liked that flower in the background. All put together beautifully as always. Tracy Evans x

Hi Hels
How did you manage to put so much lovely detail onto one ATC? You have there all the bits I love, the flowers, the moth and rafia.
It is very desirable and as Tracy said, 'I would love it', too
Best wishes
Sue A xx

This is a fabulous ATC Hels, the coloyrs are lovely, and I love the Paper Artsy flower that you've used, it's my favourite from those sets. The moth looks great perched on the sentiment, and I love the floer that you've made. The twine wrapped around the ATC is a great touch, Judith xx

Hels - this moth just tickles my fancy. I also don't have any ATC's as et - I think I have been afraid to put something on to such a small piece of material - I always want to cram so much on!!

I have booked four of your classes to come and grovel some more - and hopefully learn some stuff as well about what I have admired from afar for quite a while.

Hugs
Valxx
