Embellish It ATC

This month's theme for the 9ATC group is Embellish It. I think of lots of added elements when I hear embellish. Started with embellishing some tissue paper. Wrinkled up the tissue paper, opened it and spread it on card stock that had been run through the zyron. Sprayed on blueberry mist Memory Mist, the sprayed on shimmer Goosebumps and then blue Starburst and let dry.
 Used a paint brush to add watered down white glue to the surface, then generously sprinkled on mica flakes and prisma glitter.
 After it dried, I cut the sheet up into ATC sized pieces
 Next, adhered some wrinkled tissue paper to card stock, spritzed with shimmer Goosebumps then watered down wild plum Color Wash spray and let dry.
 Used a butterfly die to cut the purple tissue paper, placed in an embossing folder to emboss and inked the raised areas and edges with black Archival ink.
 To finish the ATC, added thin washi tape around the outer edges and a large strip of washi tape diagonally across the atc. Adhered the butterfly with metal beads and fibers. Further embellished with a large metal bead, some paper flowers and small purple beads.

Thanks for this great idea. I've just started making ATCs and was looking for ideas. This method is much better than embellishing each individual 2.5 x 3.5 card. It's a good start for making multiple cards.
