ATC Mingle: Numbers



Here is my entry for the bi-weekly mingle on Altered Start. The base is a regular playing card which was overlayed with dress pattern tissue. I added some inks and some embossing powder then added the two butterflies and the letter B which was also embossed on the edges.

I used my new Xyron 150 to adhere the butterflies. I picked it up on sale at Blick.com for under $10 and let me tell you this was the best $10 I ever spent. This thing is great, I know I will need to look into getting a bigger one for larger projects. Quick, easy and no messy glue. There is a fair amount of waste but I know I'll find a way to make use of the extra as well.

I'm adding a Xyron to the "Must Have" list for sure!

I'd love to get a Xyron for that price! But Blick.com is a UK security site? Help me out! :)

I love looking at your art! You are so talented! :) I'll be sending you a goody bag of some supplies as soon as I get my stuff gone through and organized.

Sorry that should of been http://www.dickblick.com/

The Xyron 150 is the little sticker maker and I did just google it. You can find them for less then what I paid.

Hopefully one day I can get the bigger one!
