Mask ATCs

The theme for the March 6:5 ATC swap on ccswaps is masks. I wanted the masks to be the main visual on my ATCs, not just one part. So I did a double mask. I chose a metallic speckled linen paper as the base. Used a mask by Heidi Swapp. I was going to spray on a blue Shimmering Mist spray, but the nozzle got clogged and I couldn't get it unclogged. I used a Jumbo Dauber and sponged on the Shimmering Mist over the mask.
I cut the paper down to ATC size and placed a "B" mask from a Tim Holtz alphabet mask set onto the paper and added green Distress ink over the mask to color the ATC (the B mask is on the middle piece of paper below).
I stamped a saying onto a cut sheet of the original paper I made with the floral mask, and layered it on to the ATC. I also stamped the word beautiful on to the ATC.
I layered the paper onto black card stock and glued a small dragonfly charm onto the corner of the "B".
