Don't Give Up... what I've decided to call this ATC for a swap in my Altered Art group. The background is beautiful butter colored handmade embossed paper, glued to a substrate of Bristol board. The butterfly was cut from double-sided cardstock from the 'Bohemia' line by My Mind's Eye - absolutely wonderful papers!! I added the floral vine stamps (source unknown) in Ranger Denim ink, and the musical body piece came from Digital Collage Images. The butterfly is edged with Marvy Ochre ink, DTP. I used the same ink on a Qtip to make the markings on the wings. The antennae are made from 26g jewelry wire and some nice blue beads that were RAK'd to me. The label is from K & Co, heart beads are by Blue Moon Bead Co. The card is edged with the blue ink.

Everything changes, just like the butterfly, but there is always HOPE.
