Artist Trading Card "Fly"

I have really been enjoying making ATCs again lately. They are the perfect quick and easy project to get my craft fix when I'm super busy.

I have been obsessed over UmWowStudio Chipboard (and flair) lately. This "Fly" piece is chipboard that I covered with gesso and really thick & chunky black glitter.

The owner of UmWowStudio, the super-talented DeeDee Catron has graciously given me a discount code to share with my viewers. Just use code JennE20 at checkout and get 20% off your whole order! The chipboard is super high quality and it has a darker finish than a lot of chipboard and wood veneer you see around. Which is what I love about it. Plus, they have so many cool and unique pieces to choose from.
