Embark for flight

Here is the first ATC that I made with plans to enter into Happy Litter Stampers' April ATC challenge... however, it did not go as planned.  Since I left it on my desk for two days, it has grown on me, but I still like the OTHER ONE better.

Supplies and notes:
  • Old 7 Gypsies (I think) tag from a Rolodex-type set they had years and years ago, pre printed
  • I used my hand-carved butterfly stamp with Distress Embossing Ink abd clear embossing powder
  • The background is Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire Distress Crayon smeared with water and my finger
  • The wings were painted with Spiced Marmalade Distress Paint and scribbled on with Black Soot Distress Crayon, which caught on the embossed area nicely
  • Tim's Chitchat stickers
I have to say, none of this was the plan, but it is done now.

I'll share this at the following challenges:
