ATC Extension

I really loved altering the mirror frame at the UKSN Retreat...

...and so I have been using the same technique on various projects at home...

This is an ATC...

I started by adding an embossed rectangle to some chipboard and painting with black gesso.

The next stage was to add some Inka Gold in several colours.

To this base I added an image and sentiment, both printed on white card,
 the image coloured with Promarkers, and both distressed with 'Stormy Sky'.

 The image and sentiments were freebies from Simply B
to take part in the May Challenge on the facebook group.
The challenge was to use the image with at least lilac, black and white.

Happy Crafting!
