Be True {Button ATC Swap}

I'm up over on the Amazing Crafting Products blog today with a bit of inspiration in the
form of this ATC trio.

The base is Canson watercolor paper. I've distressed the paper using Ranger Distress Ink in Walnut STain and water. Probably my favorite distress technique. EVER. I also sprinkled on a bit of Color Bloom in leather by Prima and stamped the newer Weathered Tree stamp from Viva Las VegaStamps! in Archival Ink by Ranger Ink. Be True was stamped in Smoky Gray Versafine.

My ATCS have tons of dimension to them from found objects like leaves, metal embellishments, Chipboard Buttons from UmWowStudio, and ribbon from May Arts Ribbon. I layered all the pieces up with a nice heavy duty glue. The ribbon has been knotted and trapped between the leaf and stack o' buttons.

But the leaves are really my favorite part, they've been covered with new Heavy Gesso from Prima, dipped in Resin from Amazing Crafting Products, and then sprinkled with Donna Salazar's Fairy Dust Glitter.

Thanks for visiting :)
