'Beloved' Stampotique ATC exchange

I facilitated an international ATC exchange in the Stampotique facebook group, it was so much fun. The anticipation of waiting for the atc I made to arrive in the UK, and waiting for the one mailed to me from Germany was by far the most exciting bit. Its so rare to get fun mail these days, just bills ...  

A big thank you to 'Dweeze' for being the centre piece of my ATC.
I used glossy card stock and did the wax paper resist technique with a Spellbinders Impressabilities - Fleur de lis stripe. I sponged the cardstock with wild honey and salty ocean distress inks.

I used Stampin' Up! card stock, cherry cobbler for the heart and it was die cut with the Sizzix heart - double small die, and embossed with a baroque embossing folder and I did some sponging in cherry cobbler, doodling in white sygno gel pen.
I printed the sentiments from my computer and embossed the random red detailing on the left of the atc.

Dweeze (such a cute little guy x) was stamped onto acetate with black Stazon, then also stamped in memento tuxedo black onto white copics paper and colored with copics (E02, E01, E000, B05, B02, 100). He was paper pieced over the stamped image. Then everything was adhered together, with the clear card stock inside the outer layers of the atc. I just LOVE how you can see through the card stock.
I have to say though, the back is my favourite. With a black sharpie marker I colored the silhouette of 'Dweeze' on the clear card stock, and wrote the atc title.
So many layers and such an adorable atc. It was great to participate in this exchange, so many wonderfully creative people in the  Stampotique facebook group - so happy I found it, its just my style. I was wandering around in cyber space looking for a home, think I found one :)
