I finally worked on a small art project today . . . (click on the photo to see more detail) . . . this ATC was inspired by last Tuesday's Created By Hand challenge to use flourishes in a piece of art. I know, it's not Tuesday anymore, but unfortunately, I've been plagued by migraines this week, more than usual, and since the stuff I take for the headaches makes me shaky, I have more difficulty than usual when I try to create little pieces of art--and I use the term "art" loosely, as I don't really feel I am good enough to call myself an artist--at least, not yet. At any rate, I used an image I got from The Vintage Stamper, (Nancy Dooren), the wings are from Paper Whimsy, and, after using some flourish stamps and embellishments, I used glittery embossing powder on the larger flourish and glittered the wings, (the glitter doesn't show up very well in the photo), with crystal Stickles. Then I edged the ATC with a copper Cat's Eye ink pad from Colorbox. I'm hoping to try some more challenges soon!
