Wooden Chunky ATC By Moira Sutton

My June Bug is a Chunky wood ATC which I covered with text paper using multi medium. I then applied a thin layer of watered down gesso, and when it was dry applied Distress inks in Broken china, weathered wood and worn lipstick. The Giant Daisy designed by Jo Capper-Sandon for Stampotique Oringinals was stamped onto thin paper and coloured with Distress Markers, cut out and stuck to the Chunky ATC. The small butterfly is from the Jubilee set by Pink Paislee and the Large Butterfly is also by Jo Capper-Sandon for Stampotique Originals.
