Wild ATC

 The theme for ATCs on ArtVentures group is "Wild". I was thinking of something to do with the wild outdoors, but came across this vintage image. I thought of wild hedonistic Hollywood parties of the 1920s. So I kept the colors black & white. Used a zebra print paper and added black & white striped washi tape over the edges. Stamped faded letters to spell "PARTY" with black India Ink on a film ribbon strip. 

Wings ATC

 The theme for ATCs on ArtVentures group is "Wings". I like fairies, so found a great vintage fairy image where I thought the main image needed wings.  I wrinkled up some iridescent gift wrap and adhered two sheets together, then cut wings with a die and used an embossing folder to add the swirls. Then used gold metallic Rub-ons over the surface.
Then cut the main image to add the wings. Used fast drying metal gloss paint to color the outside edges of the image and the background black glitter card stock.

Ethereal ATC

 Ethereal is the theme on 9ATC group. I think of ethereal as delicate, light and transitory.
I tore white mulberry paper into ATC sized pieces and adhered them to a smaller piece of light white card stock so the feathery edges would stand out around the ATC. Stamped dandelion image with Goldrush dye ink. Added drops from the Pearl Pen on the dandelions, I like how the Pearl Pen picked up the color from the dye ink.
I had some very lightweight paper with lacy holes in it. Stamped a butterfly image with the same Goldrush dye ink and cut out the butterfly.  Adhered the butterfly in the center with the Pearl Pen, creating the body of the butterfly. And added some Pearl Pen drops along the top.

Rainbow square quilt

I used up odd bits of fabric to make the rainbow colored border around a peacock panel. I lot of the fabrics have gold in them to add to the bright cheery feel.
Sorry, I didn't realize that part of this picture was blurry before giving away this quilt.

"Chartreuse" Color Perception ATC

 The color is Chartreuse (yellow/green or green/yellow) in September for the Color Perceptions ATC Swap on the ArtVentures Group. The ATC is to be predominately chartreuse and be how the color chartreuse makes us feel. I find this shade to be "Jarring" for some reason it sets me on edge.
Started with a glitter embossed card stock with an off shade of green and used dtp (direct-to-paper) application of a yellow green shade of dye ink over this card stock.

Tore up different yellow green and green yellow background papers and stamped with different shades of green.

Stamped a women's face in a circle image with black India ink over light yellow green paper and adhered to the card stock.
Colored the edges of of the torn & stamped background papers with crushed olive Distress ink and adhered them over the card stock and onto the stamped face.

Colored the outside edge of the ATC with crushed olive Distress ink; added colored sticker letters to spell "stop" and used metallic gel pens to add some jarring circular design.
