Rubbernecker Challenge - ATC4

My muse hit me Wednesday night and I made quite a few ATC's all at once. This is the 4th ATC I made that night. My muse told me to try brayering a background, so I pulled out the glossy cardstock and went to town. I used a retired Stampin Up Blue Frost spectrum pad for this ATC. I love the gradual change of colors you get when brayering with inks from spectrum pads.

I used Stazon Jet Black ink to stamp this Rubbernecker silhouette onto the brayered background, and set that aside to dry. The butterflies are punched from a Martha Stewart punch, and I stamped the little "dream" onto the wings. This little word is from Cornish Heritage Farms' Inchie Style set - the perfect size to fit onto a butterfly wing. I stamped it with Stazon Jet Black ink so I could cover the butterfly with Stickles and not worry about the ink smearing.

One of the design team gals did this little trick with her ATC. I loved how Broni stamped a little word on a butterfly, and it just stuck in my brain. I ended up casing her when I created this ATC. Thanks for the inspiration, Broni!!! :-)

I love all your ATC's. They all have a dreamy quality to them and are wonderful!

Well this just about 'does it'!
I cannot brayer like this at all! How on earth did you achieve such a gradual change?

What can I say besides .... WOW!
