I had a left-over background for an ATC from a recent ATC exchange, so I played with some metal findings I picked up at CHA Friday to finish it off.
I put the metal finding through the Cuttlebug with a Tim Holtz folder, dabbed on white paint and then dropped on Alcohol inks raisin and latte. Then, I sanded off the embossed birds.  I added the birds stamp from Artistic Outpost and ‘Torn Frames’ from the Technique Junkies newsletter.
Here is my collection of metal from Bello Modo- you will be seeing more of this- I love it!
Here is the ATC swap from RubberStampChat hosted by a friend from the Technique Junkies Deb Lovett.
My original ATC’s use reverse prints (and reverse-reverse prints)
Here are the ATC’s I received:
Lt to Rt
Deb Lovett-Packing Tape Transfer
Jean Heady-Spahr-Distress Ink BG
Jaimie Sander-Distress Ink and Bleach

Diane Marr-Black Magic
C Fosdick-Acrylic Paint technique
Nancy Chebuske-Guevara-Wax Paper technique (and the back is done in Mica ink)

Joannie Davis-Faux Velvet
Pat Hanberry-Paper napkin BG, embossing on acetate.

I try really hard to make an ACT for the every other Tuesday challenge Fun with ATC’s- I have one day left to go- and the theme is birds.
Thanks for stopping by!
