Some more atc's

Panda WAS for my swap this month at  we do a round robin swap where we make 9 no matter how many are signed up..My lovely friend Sarah does the swapping out.Now i misread that it was only black and white so i'll have to keep this little guy for another swap,maybe an animal one or something.After stamping my panda and handpainting him I stamped the background flourish using the tim holtz distress powder in milled lavender.Now I had my image already but needed to add my background so I covered the image with another stamped panda so as not to stamp over him .the background I waterwashed using a little glimmermist and water and just handpainted it on..Now this swap is still running so if you'd like to join in come sign up. Guess i'll have to make some more..Hmm what image to use now??
this one was for a one of swap i do with my friend Sarah.The background swirls were again with the Tim holtz distress powdermilled lavender,sprayed with juneberry wine glimmermist and crafty notions antique gold .I then heat embossed the side flourish using Allisons designs Gold leaf which i avbsolutely adore this embossing powder.the wings this time I heat embossedAntiquities frosted crystalfrom ranger which gave the lovely gloss effect.
This was for my swap last month at born2create.The theme was acetate which I added acetate wings.Thanks Vicki for running this swap for me
