 Sharing a couple of ATC's I made this month for a couple of swaps.

This was made for the Oriental Stamp Art Yahoo group swap for the dragon theme.  I just had to make one ATC, and discovered I only have one dragon stamp- that fit exactly!  I colored the image with Copics. Well, part of the image- the gold Kimono is from recycled paper towel I used to clean up a shimmery spray. I added a strip of no hole beads on the edge on a sticky strip.
  A better view of the shimmer.

  More re-cycling fun:
 This one was made using more recycled shimmery paper towel.  I stamped the Hero Arts image on the background and re-stamped just the butterfly, fussy cut it out and added the beads in the centers. I also added the beaded strip on the edge attached to sticky strip.
 I bought the beads at a garage sale : )

Love these ATC's Shelly, and your use of the re-cycled towels and the beads is fabulous.

Beautiful ATCs Shelly! Love the strip of gold microbeads on the first one, how super creative and a perfect embellie for the theme. Your next two have such a wonderful mixed media feel to them, full of textures and colours! Well done! hugs :)

Love your recycle project! I love using things like that. Another fav of mine is wax paper. I always use a little wax paper with my dies and I hate throwing the die cut wax paper out so I try to use them in some way with another card.

Hugs, Penny

Great ATC's. I really like the dragon. It is a very unique piece.

Marilyn said...

Wowsa, the dragon is a spectacular image which I like a lot, especially the way you coloured it. The butterflies are lovely... I know I keep saying it but I so admire the way you keep trying and mastering new techniques. I need to get out of this rut and try some of them.

How clever and creative to use a paper towel that you cleaned up paint with. Amazing ATCs and I am sure your swap partners were thrilled. Hope you have a great week!
