I forgot to show you!!!

Ages ago I took part in an ATC swap on UKS called Winged vintage beauty which I promised to share with you when they had arrived at their destination - I forgot LOL
So here they are now..

Firstly I downloaded the vintage lady image from the internet and printed it twice, once on card and again on to printable acetate.
I used a Paper Artsy stamp for the butterfly wings on to a piece of card.
I cut around the lady on the cardstock image and placed her on the back of the printed acetate picture so that she was more vivid and the stamped image on the background didn't show through. I then attached this to the stamped cardstock with tape where I was going to add the embelishments.I attached this to the back of a playing card which is the lattice background.
I printed a Prima fancies silhouette on safmat and layered this on to the ATC.
I added some lace, mini cameos bought from ebay and Primas with crystal centres coloured with Sharpie markers and then gave a light mist with Cosmic Shimmer in copper.
I created my card details on , downloaded as a jpeg, and then just printed them on a word document.

I received a lovely message from one of the recipients who loved my ATC and was asking me to join the ATC trail on UKS.
I really enjoyed creating them and I'm quite tempted now to join the trail on , when I have a bit more time that is LOL

Hope you like them after all this wait LOL
