Torn Recycled Paper Rose ATC

Here I go again, had this idea and it had to be tried so this is the result of my idea to make a torn paper rose in antique pink.

The rose is just layers of torn magazine paper which i have played with, rolled,painted and then glossed with a little deep mica pigment for accent

The background is acrylic layers and crackle glaze in pale dirtied pink and pale dirtied blue
I then distressed more by pulling away bits around the edge

The image is one of my own collection and the butterfly is a tiny enamel pale pink one from a broken necklace i recycled

The whole thing including the base card is recycled products ( cept the image which i had printed ages ago )

This is absolutely gorgeous June. A very clever idea. Glad to see you're recycling too. My next technique will be covering that I think as I loved doing my recycled atcs for Larrie's last swap.
