ATCs with crackle paint, wires and beads

I went to Scraptivate when I was in Perth.  I must say that I was blown away by the talent I saw in that one shop.  Feeling inspired,  I came up with these ATCs.

I did the background before I left by using chipboard and Jo Sonja paint.  I then added crackle paint by using bubble wrap.  How? Just apply the crackle paint thickly onto the bubble wrap and stamp onto the chipboard - easy.

Then I wrapped 28 gauge wires around the ATC card and where the wires met - I added some beads here and there.  Loved the effect after I added some German Scraps (which is the green scalloped foil)  which is available locally at Scrappingville or you may buy online at Scraptivate.

Lastly I added a butterfly each from the local haberdashery and some Making Memories alphas to complete them.  I had fun making the ATCs and would like to thank the ladies at Scraptivate for their hospitality and inspiration.
