with brave wings she flies

Hi everyone! Hope you’ve had a good weekend! This month’s ATC Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you today! The theme for our February ATC Challenge is Stencils and we’d love to see what you create for our challenge this month!

february 2019

I created my ATC for this challenge from Chalkboard cardstock. I’ve had this in my stash for a couple years, actually, and this is only the second time I’ve used it. Don’t ask me why… it’s a pretty fun product, especially with chalk markers!


I pounced white dye ink through the butterfly and ink splotch portion of the stencil and then spritzed Glimmer Mist over it to give it some gorgeous shimmery color. I applied dimensional paste with a spatula over two other areas of the stencil and let that dry.


I created the sentiment on the computer, hand-cut the words and adhered them to the left side of the ATC, then outlined them with a purple chalk marker. The finishing touch were pink and yellow dots created with chalk markers. I sprayed a matte fixative over the entire ATC so nothing would rub off.


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Darice All Chalked Up cardstock
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black Marker; Sweet Stamps White Dye Ink; Bistro Chalk Markers- Purple, Pink and Orange, Tattered Angels Dragonfly Glimmer Mist
Accessories:  Kadomaru Pro Corner Rounder, The Crafter’s Workshop Mini Butterfly Collage Stencil, DecoArt Dimensional Effects, Krylon Matte Fixative

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project and will link up an ATC with us this month! We’d love to see what you create – either a card or a coin! Thanks so much for stopping by today – we’ll see you next time! ;)

Scrappy hugs,

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
