ATC ---Nature


I have made this ATC for a friends birthday. The front was painted with gold acrylic paint and heated to make it bubble. The middle portion is gold embossing powder, I then added air dry clay words, mushrooms, and leaves.
The inside is made with foam board, covered in a page from a book, and inked. The nest, bird and mushrooms are made from air dried clay , and placed in the opening. The other side is inked and stamped. The butterflies and dragonfly are also air dry clay, and are very fiddly, as they are so thin and small. I have more dragonflies without wings than with.
The scan has unfortunately made the colours look a bit dull.

I love your ATC's and think the slightly muted colours are more natural. I don't make them myself but love to see other people's. I would like to try some made with embellished felt. I am supposed to be a textile artist but am lured away every so often by paper arts!
