AND ~ chriss rollins ~ is still our quest designer ~ and what fabulous work that chickie creates! for my atc i was inspired by the lil pic on the side of my blog ~ the quote ~ "WE ARE EACH OF US ANGELS WITH ONLY ONE WING AND WE CAN ONLY FLY BY EMBRACING ONE ANOTHER." the background of my atc was distressed with tim holtz inks ~ i then cut, stamped and used rubons for all the wording (with a lil help from dh...what a guy!) ~ whoa...that took quite a while doing some of those letterz..one by one! the image is handcut ~ as is the stamped wing. to give a 3D effect the butterflies were handcut ~ with folded forward wings. i handcut the rose for placement ~ then put on modpodge for a rough ~ shine ~ and added the ribbon for a final touch! well..that was a quick post ~ ACK ~ i really dislike being late! ok...i promise that won't happen next week! big hugz chickies ~ hope you have a rawkin scrappin happy week!
