Wings ATCs

The theme for PaperPlays January ATC swap is Wings.
Here are the ATCs that I made for the swap.

I used Grunge Paste and a Finnabair stencil on my painted ATC, when the grunge paste was dry I went over the embossed area with some emerald Treasure Gold.
I stamped the Stampotique large bee onto white card, cut out the wing section and covered them with some stickles.
I punched out the head of a Stampotique image with a circle punch and adhered it to the inside of a bottle cap, then I covered it with Glossy Accents. I adhered the bottle cap and wings to my ATC and added the Creative Expressions sentiment.
I'm entering this ATC in the Stampotique Designers Challenge Winged Things.

I coloured some card with Distress ink directly to the card and stamped the Stampers Anonymous birds then I embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I went over the raised areas with some Treasure Gold.
I adhered some sticky backed aluminium to some card and stamped the Chocolate Baroque bird onto it with Stazon. I embossed some of the pattern and then cut it out. I covered the bird with black acrylic paint and then wiped most of it away. I adhered the bird onto the card.

The background was coloured with Distress ink. I stamped the Stampotique large bee onto the ATC and onto some white card.
I used a stencil to make the pattern and then stamped the Stampotique tiny bees.
I went round the edges with black soot using my finger.
I coloured the bee that was stamped onto white card and cut it out, then I covered the wings with stickles, then I adhered it over the image on the ATC cutting of the bits that hung over the edge of the ATC.
