ATC Swap

My first design team was with Crop Chocolate, it was an HONOR!  Amber, Jon and McCall were AMAZING to work with.  I met the most talented ladies and made some GREAT friends!  I served a second term on that team and that term would have just been coming to an end in June.  Crop Chocolate had to make a hard decision and they shut the retail doors of the site so that meant the design team, for all intents and purposes, would end too.  Well we, the team,  weren’t ready to end it quite yet so we are hosting weekly challenges over at Crop Chocolate and banding together to keep all of the followers inspired.  It is a great group of ladies!! 
When you get to know people and work with them for a while you appreciate each persons style and learn how their personality is expressed through what they create.  The team and our leader, Amber, decided to end our official term with an ATC swap so we would all be able to have a piece of each others art, 17 total!
Our theme for the swap was SPRING and here is what I came up with.


I used the small version of my FAVORITE stamp from VLVS!, spotted butterfly and stamped to make the butterfly look like it was flying.  The flowers are cut with Tim Holtz Tattered Floral movers and shapers out of dictionary pages.  The centers of the flowers are Distress Stain-Worn Lipstick and a brad from MME Indie Chic.  I finished the design with a splatter of Tattered Angels glimmer mist and some gems.  I didn’t feel it was quite done so I doodled around the edges.  VIOLA!


Check back soon to see all the  beautiful ATC’s these talented ladies are swapping...they are going in the mail so I should get them soon!!
