Burnt Orange

I love making ATCs. These are for a colour themed challenge - orange - definately not my favourite colour to work with! However choosing a burnt orange and toning it down further with stamping and text seems to work. All stamps used are from The Artistic Stamper. I have used a text stamp with rust ink on the coloured paper and then overstamped this with part of a flouish stamp around the edges in black. Most of the flourish stamp is used again on the bird ATC to act as a branch, again in black. The bird and the butterflies are stamped on the cards with black ink and then again on a book page. These are then cut out and paper pieced (one of my favourite techniques) over the original images. Edges are sponged with Black Soot distress ink and a few 'jewels' added to accent.
