Alphabet ATC - B
I normally post details of each ATC separately but this month, as they have all been created in a similar way I am posting the set of 3 together. The letter this month is B.
I started off with a background made with blue and green Perfect Pearls which I spritzed with water to set it. When dry this went through a Cuttlebug embossing folder called Persia. I brushed mowed lawn DI over the top to highlight the embossing. I used my new marker pens for all the colouring and wanted to create some colourful rather than realistic images.
The top ATC is B for Beauty. I used an old Elusive Images set for the flower and the quote. I had originally thought of using one of the Gibson Girl stamps I have but the reference to a 'thing' of beauty made me decide to go for a floral image instead.
Next comes B for Bird. I used one of the less well-known Dina Wakley scribbly bird stamps and text with some washi tape and gems.
The final ATC is B for Butterfly. The butterfly is from a stamp and cut set by Dare 2 B Artzy. The bloom is by Altenew and the word is by Paper Artsy. I embellished with some gems and black enamel accents.
