September's ATC

Drum roll, please....here's my ATC submissin for our group trade this Saturday. The suggested theme for September was "Faeries". This is my "Trash Faerie" or Faerie of the trash. The rubber stamp is from Stampington & Co. and the image is created by Sandra Evertson. The name of the image is Bounder. I thought it was perfect for my faerie.

I used 140 lb. cold pressed watercolor paper by Fabriano which come in a 10" X 14" pad. Perfect. You can get 16 cards from one sheet with absolutely no waste (the perscribed dimension for an ATC card is 2 1/2" by 3 1/2"). I used 2 sheets for a total of 32 cards. Our group is getting bigger! Backgorund done in Golden's fluid acrylic paints with a glaze added. A large, flat marble was glued over the face and I added a black netting bowtie that is attached with a small little copper brad. No two cards are exactly alike.
