Candy Wrapper ATC

love milagro ATC
I created this ATC with a digital stamp from Smeared Ink. It is part of the Milagro Digi Set. I colored the image using MS Paint and then added some shadows with chalks. The ATC is embellished with a foil candy wrapper and a piece of ruffle yarn.

TOP TIP TUESDAY - Candy wrapper foils can be used to provide your project with sparkle and a stained glass effect. I used a glue stick to prepare my surface for the foil. Smooth out the foil and apply to the sticky surface and gently press it into the glue. Trim excess. So easy and look at the wonderful effect!

I am entering this ATC in the following challenges:

Top Tip Tuesday -#85 recycle it
Smeared & Smudged - September Junk Funk (candy wrappers)
ATC's with Attitude - #23 anything goes
Vintage Elusions - #7 anything goes
Everybody's Art Challenge - #205 ATC
LEJ - #21 sparkle & shine
Through the Craftroom Door - #36 anything goes

Please view the artwork on display at the above listed sites. You will be happy you took the time!

What a stunning project and I love the use of the sweetie wrapper. It takes me back to childhood when I used to love the foil and cellophane wrappers to play with. Thank you for sharing at LEJ Designs challenge; good luck in the draw. Veexx
