Here's my 13th ATC for The Craft Barn's Alpha/Dictionary Challenge where the letter is B. So many words to choose from and even more difficult as we have already done A and C!
I've gone for a Brown and Blue background using Vintage Photo and Salty Ocean Distress Inks spritzed with water etc. My main word is BUTTERFLY - I've used the Charming Butterfly stamps from Oak House Studio. They were inked with Cocoa Bean Brilliance and clear embossed using some card I'd sprayed with Citrus Orange and Citrus Yellow Ink in a Bottle.
So Bright Bold Butterflies ....and yes I've added 2 butterflies as a link to all the words starting with Bi !! Again my ATC is finished with the dictionary definition and the alcohol inked vinyl Thicker. It turned out a little darker than I imagined but then both A and C are quite light so it'll do!
Well that is halfway with the challenge so here's a photo of all 13 so far. Not only is this challenge great fun, it's also educational too and I've learnt quite a few new words! My next job is to create an album and make another ATC for A for my A to Z front cover - I have in mind an Abbey with an Azure Sky. Then I may well struggle when it comes to Z and I have to make two of those!
Anyway I'm off to see what everyone else has done - guess there'll be a few butterflies but I'm sure someone will have chosen something obscure!! Thanks for looking.
