Mixed Media ATCs @ STAMPlorations

{My DT work for STAMPlorations}

Hello everyone! I am back to share with you a recent project I did as part of my design team project for STAMPlorations. This time we bring you a month long mixed media challenge throughout March and we would like to see any form of mixed media projects you wish to create but not cards. My teammates have created awesome projects with hope will inspire you to create yours. Take a visit at this link to view them.

I made a set of ATCs with blue and purple in the background and shined the butterflies with colors.
More close-up pictures:
 I stamped Trendy Butterflies 2 on drawing paper and fussy cut the beauties. Next they were colored with watercolor paints using aqua brush. It was so much fun coloring these gorgeous creatures. 
 I created a line of bubbles by stamping the stamp repeatedly in different motion with Artsy Border Maker stamp set. My little girl told me they look like ants walking to a destination!
I begun my work by applying modeling paste through Plaid Maker ARTplorations stencil on two pieces of 200gsm acid free drawing paper before I brush down with handmade clear gesso. Once dried, I started playing with watercolors. Yes, I always use watercolors in my art projects.
Taking my ATCs into these challenges:
1. Double D Challenge : Things That Fly
2. ATC Around The World : Everything Goes with option Angel

That's it for today. Hope you like my ATCs and I hope some day I will have time to join ATC swap group. Must be fun I believe? Are you doing ATCs and a member of swap group that you would kindly recommend me? Thanks in advance.

Until I see you again soon. Thank you for dropping by.
Hugs and smiles,
