Wow I've managed to get the photo alongside the wording so I've done something right.
Just as a reminder for myself really, I brayered the backgrounds of both ATCs using a Big and Juicy Gum Drop inkpad onto glossy card. The one on the left is using Elusive Images 'All of a Twitter' themeplate and coffee bean Brilliance ink then coloured in with Sakura Stardust pens . The wording is stamped onto a piece of torn velum and attached with brads and finally one of the birds stamped onto shrink plastic. The one on the right is using the Elusive Images 'Wild Meadow' themeplate and a selection of Brilliance ink pads with the final pale blue layer embossed with clear powder. The final touch is a Creative Expressions butterfly stamped onto shrink plastic and coloured with chalks.
