An ATC for a friend

It truly sucks when a member defaults sending out an ATC to their designated partner for a swap.

So, I decided to send an ATC to the person who got left out. ^__^

Asked the lady her favorite color before I sat down to make the ATC....

"PINK!" she said...

So I rummaged through my stamp collection, pulled out the Altenew Inks (Red Cosmos) set and whipped this up!

Here are the steps :

1. Created background with BoBunny - It Is Written stamp set.

2. The heart stamp went on next which is a rubber cling by Penny Black (Love Flourish).

3. That lovely sentiment is a So Suzy Stamp, aptly titled "Be".

4. Shaded some areas of the heart using Neon Pink paint. (Watercolor)

5. Punched out a butterfly from Martha Stewart 3 in 1 butterfly punch.

6. Punched a hole on top left and added a pink eyelet.

7. Finally looped a pink and white striped ribbon through it, added some glitter to the heart and the butterfly + a couple of sequins. ^__^

Note : Altenew Inks are gorgeous, stamp beautifully, render an evenly inked impression but they are NOT waterproof.
To be able to watercolor and shade the heart I first coated the image border with Micro Glaze.

Total time taken inclusive of drying time : 1 hour.

To know that the receiver loved it : Priceless.
