A new project that I face for the first time ever ... the ATCs. They are so fun to make and I think this will not be the last time that I do. I made from a canvas two rectangles, slightly smaller than the standard of ATC size (2.5 "x 3.5"); I treated the background with black gesso. Once dry, I used the Shimmerz paint with a palette knife and Shimmerz texture paste with a stencil ...  the glowing effect of the color has a beautiful contrasting effect with the black background. I added some acrylic paint splatters, white and gold; I wrapped the twine around the card. Some scraps of patterned paper, punched butterfly , and as a final touch a little punched heart  and colored with metallic color and to make it more three-dimensional I covered it with a layer of gloss accent. Finally I cut from a white cardstock two rectangles (of the precise size of the ATCs)and I fixed on them the two smaller card.
