Sweet Stamps challenge # 134: ATC WEEK

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to Sweet Stamps ATC CHALLENGE WEEK.
And if for any reason you don't know what ATC is, those are small art   pieces that are called Artistic Trading Cards and usually are made for swaps. Anyway, the regular ATC  is usually vertical   be artistic and not scrappy style and very much flat as they are sent in envelopes for swaps. Here and there you see those shabby style " fat " ATC, but it's not  what they were primary should be.




 So my card is a typical ATC: flat, regular sized, vertical small art piece; made with 2 Sweet Stamps silhouette stamps:  Robin Bird Silhouette  and Queen Ann's Wildflowers Silhouette. The Flowers stamp was stamped  several times around the cardstock as a border and then I added the Bird in the empty space on the card.  I used permanent black ink, but forgot that my ATC  blank card was  semi gloss, so I had to add some clear embossing powder to  make it permanent as I wanted to use mists over this piece.To make it a bit dimensional I used some sparkle dimensional clear paint (Art Anthology) and then added a few small chipboard pieces form Wycenanka (5 smallest possible butterflies and a piece of  net), all misted after they were glued over the piece.
And now  it's your turn! Grab some stamps, some paints and some small embellishments and enter our ATC challenge to win great prize!
