I really enjoyed making this, which fits into two challenge categories - firstly the Wednesday Stamper's two-tone theme. I love green and blue, particularly together and these tones just zing! It also works for the Theme Thursday hearts.
I made the background with Distress and Colourwash inks - and then chose this image, partly because of the soft turquoise blouse, but also because I love her eyes. The word "serendipity" (meaning a happy accident) is a rub-on, and the raised dots around the edge are done with relief outliner (a product I've recently rediscovered). The woven texture is a Hero Arts stamp. The little heart is a chipboard shape I've painted with metallic acrylic, and to which I've added relief dots, and the butterfly just sort of needed to be there to finish it off!
This is one of my favourite ATCs - I think its because I love the colours so much, but I will trade it if you really really insist .....
