Butterflies and Birds ATC's

Here are my 2 ATC's for the 7th set of words for The Craft Barn Quotes and Lyrics Challenge. Change and or Truth.
As a song didn't pop into my head and my searches left me uninspired I have gone with quotes this time.

A gelli print background was my starting point which I cut with Tim Holtz ATC die, then using 2 different embossing folders.....

Couture Creations.
Using metallic gilding wax colours amethyst, patina(turquoise) and bronze I went over the raised areas the smell is gorgeous, quotes were printed on computer and edged with frayed burlap distress ink.

I would also like to play at

'till next time
