The Stamp Man ATC Swap - Historical Romance

Well where did January go then? It just slipped past so quickly I hardly noticed it. They say time flies when you are having fun, but I am not sure this is really the case.

Anyway - it seems ages since I have made an ATC and I loved making this one - shabby vintage yet again.

The background was made with Starburst Stain and Moonglow sprays and gesso layers, then stencilled over with DI. 
(memo to self use heavier weight card next time to prevent any buckling!!)

The image is Graphic 45 Le Romantique set and I have added cheesecloth, lace and other small embellishments to finish it off.

Moon Glow - Golden Pumpkin Blush, Phantom Fuchsia.
Claudine Hellmuth Gesso
TH distress inks - Tea Dye, Vintage Photo
Graphic 45 - Le Romantique set
Martha Stewart butterfly punch

Why not pop over to the Stamp Man ATC blog and join in. 
You could be the proud owner of a set of ATCs in return.

Have fun.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
