The theme for 9ATC Group is Newsprint & Buttons. I used a printed specialty paper for the background and stamped a printed text image with black Distress ink. Colored newspaper with homemade sprays mixed with dye inks and Perfect Pearls. Tore plain newspaper for a stem, punched out flower and leaves with a floral punch. Used a white pen to draw lines on the flower leaf. Used black Distress ink to color the edges of the ATC and adhered a button to the center of the flower.

On 9atc Group, the theme is "Rust". I started by adhering torn, old style newsprint paper onto card stock, and glued on mica dust around the edges.
Added some decorative feathers and a strip of glittery copper decorative tape. Adhered the painted heart with brads that I pounded and dabbed on some rust Patina paint.

stamped watercolor effects technique. I used a solid floral stamp and colored on the stamp with three colors of Distress Markers (any dye ink markers will work). Instead of spritzing with water, I spritzed the stamp with a Perfect Pearls mist (water and perfect pearls mixed together in a mini mister). Then I pressed the stamp into water color paper and let dry. I layered the stamped watercolor paper onto purple paper and then white card.

Then splatter wet Perfect Pearls over the card and let dry completely. Okay to heat set.
Attached the vellum to the ATC with gold colored staples and used a gold colored Pearl Pen to add "knobs" to the image. ATC with the "doors" closed:

Someone gave me this Hungry Caterpillar panel and some left over fabric. I added the green and rainbow fabric for a fun kid's quilt.
