A week of firsts .... ATC's


I'm having a week of first times, starting off with ATC's. Previous attempts to make them have kinda failed but this time it just worked. I made this butterfly ATC to enter a few challenges out there.

Compendium of Curiosities Challenge
I'm loving this challenge, it actually makes me look at the book and try the techniques rather than just having it sit on the shelf. So this week it's shabby chic and that's how the background was created. I made a set of 3 (see below) and all backgrounds were created using the technique.

One of their challenges is 'Shades o blue' so my little blue butterfly is fluttering over there too.

Of course an ATC wouldnt be just that if I didn't trade it too, so I'm joining in on their ATC swap, the theme is 'Wings'.


Here is the whole set that's being sent off.
