So Thankful

I have a quick post this time... unusual for wordy ol' me! I wanted to make an atc for this week's Wicked Wednesday challenge #58 of Be Thankful. Atcs are such fun to  create and I treat myself pretty much every week to the opportunity to make at least one. They are small (2 1/2" x 31/2") but can contain a lot of  elements and have great impact.

For this atc, I embossed a black cardstock background with a Cuttlebug EF and then dry-brushed it with copper metallic acrylic paint. The image is from Dilly Beans, coloured with Prismacolor pencils, and cut out with a Spellbinders die. Black Soot Distress Ink was sponged around the edges and popped up on foam tape. The sentiment was computer generated and cut with another SB die before being mounted on faux stitched red cardstock. The tiny buttons are from my stash.

Easy peasy but I love it! Dilly Bean images are so fun to colour and play with!

Thanks for visiting.

Life is good; so is art.
