Mixed Media ATCs

Hello again! Happy Sunday from me and us the design mixed media girls at STAMPlorations. Yup, that means a mid-challenge showcase by the design team for today's Sunday Stencil and a reminder to get your anything goes mixed media makes to January Mixed Media Challenge by the end of this month.

I did a set of ATCs and when I showed my oldest daughter during our video talk, she asked me, "...isn't green not your favorite color?" Erm, I realized the projects I did lately have been in green shades and it's not even my favorite color {but I really adore green plants, chuckle}. For this project, I blended in some greens, blues, yellow and black. I bet this is going to be a group of colors I will use frequently throughout the year. We'll see. 
A few close-up pictures: 
 I love butterflies and like to have them in my creations. I stamped trendy butterflies using versafine onyx black ink on 200gsm acid free drawing paper and fussy cut nicely before I attached them over the black strings for additional interest.
 The uppercase alphabets is reverse die cuts from previous projects. I used the letters for some previous projects and keep the left overs for future creation like this one. I cut the piece neatly and glue down on thick card stock.
 I started to prime the three foundation with light gesso and let dry before I swiftly gave them brush strokes of Deco Art paints. I also left some yellow paint on certain spots for stenciling purpose.
 So I applied texture paste through crisscrossed stencil over the yellow paint to create random patterns just so the texture paste and yellow paint blend together naturally.
 Lastly I stick down three computer generated quotes. Usually I will distress the edges with black watercolor pencil but decided to leave it as is. Yes, it is what it is {smile}.
 That's it! I hope you find my ATCs inspiring and may help you get some ideas to create this week.
