Here are some more gorgeous “Fairies and Flutterbies” ATC’s by: Robin, Vicky.
Robin Shakoor – Flutterby
“Good things come in small packages.” I can’t think of a better way to describe an ATC. This is my first but surely not my last. I used the beautiful Butterflies #2 to adorn my sweet fairies as they flutter about on my arch shaped canvas. I added bits of cheescloth which I sprayed pink and tucked it behind the fairies.
I painted the butterflies using Dusty in Colour Navajo White acrylic paint. Once dry, I topped with clear crackle varnish. As a final touch, I added Dusty in Colour Dusty Pink acrylic paint to the dried crackle finish and wiped away the excess to reveal a beautiful pink design going through my butterflies.
Thanks so much for visiting us today.

Vicky Alberto – Flutterby Fountain
Artist trading cards (ATCs) are the perfect little canvas (2.5″ x 3.5″) to play with product and create a pretty embellishment to add to a layout or as a focal point of a card/tag. Here I have added a Dusty Attic chipboard fountain (DA0653), painted in white, that I topped with a mix of pale pink fine german glitter glass combined with coarser “diamond dust” — to create a Parisian themed card (using Meg’s Garden papers). I love how combining the two glass products gives a soft vintage effect.
