FLY--a pop-up butterfly atc

Each panel is a double-sided, acrylic paint Gelli plate print,
This is the cover of the little atc size "book"
stamped with lots of beautiful background and main image stamps from Something Tattered (you can find a complete list on the Something Tattered blog).

 The background stamping isn't prominent, but I do like how it adds extra color and dimension.

You can see some of the wallpaper background, stamped in turquoise, lurking behind this elegant chandelier.
The butterfly is a collage image from Altered Pages.
I like using a piece of the print to make the pop-up--it blends in nicely in with the atc background, don't you think?

Thank you for stopping by--I've been terrible about blogging so far this summer, what with house painting/redoing projects and gardening, but when it gets hot, you know I'll be back around to see what you've been doing!  I'd also like to join in the folding fun this month at Craft Hoarders Anonymous

:)
PS:  Thank you, Craft Hoarders Anonymous, for the fave!
