An ATC A Day - Day 3

Day 3 of my ATC challenge and I chose to play with this exquisite RW Laser Cuts ATC Miniature feather. I just love the design of this feather. Now when I think feathers...I think BIRDS!! Pretty obvious really...

I found this gorgeous image of a bird's nest on a sheet of Heartwarming Vintage images. These vintage images sheets are SO perfect for ATCs. First I stuck down some cream mesh ribbon on a patterned paper base, stuck the nest image on top and applied Crackle Accents over the surface. Once dry and nicely crackled, I added a little bird from the same sheet of vintage images, added a quote and some German Scraps that I had rubbed Antique Linen Distress Ink into.

For the feather, I applied a tiny amount of PVA Glue over the surface, rubbing it in with my fingertip and allowed it to become slightly tacky. Then I used 'Joss' paper to apply some gold to the feather. I finished it off by rubbing in the Antique Linen Distress Ink and then adding it to the ATC so that it was cradling the nest.

See you tomorrow ATCers.
