Sweet Stamps- Anything Goes

For the challenge this week at Sweet Stamps, we are creating with the theme of Anything Goes. Well, my ATC group met this month and we traded ATC's that had beads on them, so I used the occasion to bead an ATC.


 I also recycled on this project- the orange backing is from a baby wipe I used to clean up the ink from a previous project.

 I used a birdcage and bird from Globecraft and Piccolo from Sweet Stamps.  I used the Enamel Embossing Adhesive and Enamel Embossing Powder(s) Siam Silver and Royal Sterling on the bird cage.  The bird has 3D Enamel Gel in Daffodil Pearl and a few Glass no hole beads in black.

Sequins with bead centers were added with a needle and thread. I pierced around the edge of cardstock and used a needle and thread to add the beads to the edge.  I had to add some roses to the top to finish off the ATC.

Challenges:
That Craft Place- Mixed Media
We Love to Create- Mixed Media
Gem of a Challenge- Bird
Frilly and Funky- Things with Wings
ATC's Around the World- AG

Thanks for stopping by!

Shelly this is fabulous - love the beading, and the unique background. The white rose ribbon really makes the colours 'pop'.
