Vintage atc's

MY latest atc,Spread your wings and fly are for a Vintage swap at amandas scrap,swaps. It's also Vintage week at the three muses so I thought Iwould enter it in there alsoI started by layering and glueing different vintage papers together added paint here and there and newspaper also and then peeled away in different spots.I love the effect this gave..I then added a gloss medium to the cards once i had cut them to size.After that I heat embossed the lovely flourish you can see on the top using tim Holtz distress powders but I didn't like the look it was a little bold so I scraped that away lightly also and then restamped the image with black stazon.Finally i added the butterfly and quote .lightly painted with crafty notions spray in antique gold.Love the aged effect.
