Tilda & Friends ATC Challenge "NO Designer Paper"

This week over on the Tilda & Friends ATC Challenge Blog we have a theme of "NO Designer Paper". For my ATC I used one of the Sugar Nellie stamps designed by Leanne Ellis....and she has been stamped onto Hot Pressed Paper and water coloured with Distress Inks using the following colours...

Tattered Rose/Worn Lipstick (Skin)
Worn Lipstick (Lips)
Black Soot (Hair)
Milled Lavender/Dusty Concord (Wings)
Milled Lavender/Dusty Concord/Shabby Shutters/Peeled Paint (Clothing)

To create the background I first added a layer of Weathered Wood, then once it was dry, I added some Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord, finally once that was dry I added some Faded Jeans to the edges. I am really please as the colours add a really moodiness to the ATC. To finish her off I added a heart pin and some ribbon (I stuck the pin to her hand with Glossy Accents) and added some Sakura clear glitter gel pen and finished with my ATB tape writer to make the word "granted", so now my title is "Wish Granted".

This week is Anesha's final week as Guest DT member....Thanks Anesha. A Guest DT member has been chosen for February (which is also our Birthday Month), so why not hop on over and take a look....you can be sure that every ATC will be so different.

You did it again - love the colours on this one and the pins are very cute too. Not something we could find at our florists here in DK. I just finished a card with a HORSE - well that's a first - but I an quite satisfied with it and the lady I made it for was over the moon - you can see it at my blog if you're interested. Best wishes.
