“Life is Tough” ATC by Keri Sallee

Good morning, everyone!  This post is a very long time coming…several months ago, design team member, Keri Sallee, left the ButterBeeScraps design team.  This is her last and final project.  I’m a little sad because I no longer have a design team (as you have probably already noticed); however, with every change there is a new opportunity, right?

Well, I have decided that rather than maintain a design team, I will share projects created by all of you…my ButterBeeScraps fans and loyal customers 🙂  If you don’t already know, I have started a community over on Facebook where we can all meet and share a little inspiration with other metal-loving scrappers.  I will randomly choose projects posted by the members there to post here on my blog…and if I choose your project, I will credit your account with 1500 Beebits 😀  That’s worth $15 in the ButterBeeScraps shop!  …just for sharing!  All you have to do is head over to Facebook, request to join the ButterBeeScraps group, and start sharing your projects 🙂

Without further adieu…let’s have a look at Keri’s last design team project…a very beautiful and uplifting ATC card:

Keri created the background of her ATC using Inktense blocks, which work a little like watercolor pencils.  She then mixed paint with clear modeling paste and used it with a stencil to add a bit of texture to her background.  For more details on how Keri created this colorful background, I suggest you have a look at her blog post right HERE.  She goes into a bit more detail and shares a few more photos of the process.

After the background had dried, Keri started layering a vintage doily, washi tape, ButterBeeScraps metals, and finally a ticket with a great saying I think we need to remind ourselves of from time to time 😉  The ButterBeeScraps products Keri used include a large silver flower (#283-P), three small silver flowers (now discontinued), a bronze butterfly (#887-B), and SS20 Aquamarine flat back glass rhinestones.

Here’s a closer look at the butterfly and metal flowers:

Well, that about does it for Keri’s last DT project.  Thank you, Keri, for sharing your talent with us, and doing a great job as part of my team!  Best of luck in all of your future endeavors!  …and, of course, I thank everyone else for coming on over to visit little ole me here on my blog and taking the time to peruse today’s blog post.  Cheers!
