Butterflies, Birds, Backgrounds and A Give Away

I want to show you an atc I made last week. Usually when I make a piece of art I use my own background. When I say my own background I mean I have started with a piece of blank watercolor paper and painted, inked, stamped or distressed it myself. It is one of my most favorite parts of the creative process. Matter of fact sometimes I like my background so much that I have a hard time covering it up to make a piece of art.

For this atc below I used a pre-made atc background sheet from Paper Imagery Designs. The title of the sheet is For the Birds. PID offers a large selection of images with birds and butterflies. These sheets are my favorites and you will find the images in a lot of my art.

The butterfly came from the Butterflies, Dragonflies and Insects sheet. This was one of the easiest atc's I've ever made and it is one of my favorites.

There is still time to enter my atc giveaway here. The giveaway ends on July 3rd. You'll find info on the contest blog post on how you can win an even bigger give away from Paper Imagery Designs when you place an order. And don't forget to check out the links for the other Paper Imagery Designs Design Team members who are also having a give away on their blogs. Their links are on the contest post.

And in case I am missing in action when the contest ends.....We are waiting for our second granddaughter to arrive.Her due date is July 4th so any day now she will be arriving. So I will post the winner as soon as possible.

Thanks for stopping by!
