ATC exchange- Use Glue/PVA

 I  joined in a ATC swap with the theme use Glue/PVA. I LOVED creating using a Technique Junkies technique called Distressed Glue. 
 I made two of the backgrounds and used the pink one for paper piecing on the green.

This one uses the Summer Distress inks- that I had never used since I purchased them...... I had to adjust to the brightness of the colors, but really liked it in the end......

 I love roosters- and I love this sentiment.

 And one more using a Halloween theme. 

All stamps are Artistic Outpost.

Challenges:

Frilly and Funky- Resist and Vintage- HERE
Anything Goes- make your own Background- all ATC's above-entry #2- HERE
Oldie but Goodie- HERE- Paper Piecing and use something 6 mos old- I have never used this stamp set before- sadly- isn't it pretty!

Your ATCs are all really cute. I love those Artistic Outpost stamps! Beautifully done background and designs. Your summer distress blue bird ATC is really nice. I know what you mean about the brightness of the colors...harder for me to get used to, but they really are awesome colors and can be toned down, if you're more comfortable with the softer colors...as you've done so well on your ATC. Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
