ATC Decorated withTattered Flowers & Swirls

I'm not really sure why, but I really enjoyed making this canvas board. Why this particular board? I'm guessing that after using the Gelli Plate, I was truly inspired to create something with layers using several paint colors.

I layered opaque and metallic Lumiere paints, alternating between colors. I was also anxious to try out my new Hero Arts Swirl Stamp, boy, I'm glad I purchased it - it's beautiful!!!!! There is an ATC in the middle that has been stamped and decorated with Dresden, it sits on a piece of card stock with decorative corners. There are pieces of coffee filter that have been inked and stamped with swirls and text. There's a small piece of cheese cloth behind the Tim Holtz's Tattered Flowers and the pin has a blue-green crystal. The ribbon used to hang it up has been painted with the metallic Lumiere paint and has the same small swirl stamp as the coffee filters.

I am super excited because this is the first time that I am able to submit a project to more than 2 challenges -- YEY!!! I'm entering this 5 x 7 canvas board to the following challenges:
Well, I hope I haven't bored you with all my "jibber-jabber" [can you tell that "The Big Bang Theory" is one of my favorites shows? :)]. Thank you for stopping by and leaving your comments!!! :)

Nicie, You are a true artist that can think outside the box. Your work is delicate and busy but not overwhelming. Your colors are so stunning and sutle. You did a wonderful job of scale and white space.
Thank you for showing us a way to incorporate all the elements of layering in a complimentary way.
