Anatomy of an ATC

Lots of cards start with an idea or a theme-this one from the Masks theme at Created Byhand Tuesday Challenge. I'm enjoying spotlighting the new Wicked Rubber from Quietfire, and wanted to use this mask quote.As you can see below- it took many tries before I got to this finished piece. When ever I learn a  new technique, or want to try out a new idea I often will make several 'dummies' before I even get to a finished design idea. I hope this will inspire y'all to create and to enter the challenge. Just do it and keep on messing about till you get something you like- even if you don't like it- someone will-trade it- or put it away and take it out  a year later- you might be surprised. Leave me a comment if you need more sspecific instructions for this card. I'm leading an arts and sabbath retreat this week and pressed for time( my sabbath comes next week!)
 Thanks for your comments.
