Special Guest - Doni

Hello, Whimsy friends!
Today we welcome the lovely Doni to the blog.

For my project I used the ATC Book Die Set, the ATC Frames and Signatures and Butterflies stamps.

To start, I die cut the ATC Book die set on a heavy cardboard and decorated it by making a collage of monoprints made previously with gelli plate, then with my finger to make everything uniform I added a little turquoise and teal acrylic paint here and there and with the painting palette knife and white gesso I created the texture. 

To further embellish and bring out the colors, I got the edges '' dirty'' with black  Woody Stabilo and embossed with gold embossing powder. For the focal point I used the largest butterfly of the Butterflies set, first I stamped on a white sheet with a black pad and I colored the stamp with Copic colors, then I embossed the same butterfly on an acetate sheet with the gold embossing powder and I cut the butterfly in half, joining the two parts (the paper and the acetate one)and gluing, to give depth. 

Then I glued the sentiment that is very important to me on a project. Inside the box on the left side I typed the symbolic definition of the butterfly and framed it with one of the stamps of the ATC Frames and Signatures stamp set. The ATC was created with the same procedure, but using a smaller butterfly and the sentiment of the same set.

Here is both the ATC and the book here.

And here are photos of the ATC book opened up with the ATC inside. A match made in heaven.

Thank you, Doni, for this adorable inspiration!
