mushroom atc

I have two mushroom atcs to show this morning. 
~ Ü ~

I made two for a swap and decided to have them both similar with slight variations. The mushroom stamp is from buzzcraft, and they are embossed in ranger ep. I had quite a bit of issues with that particular ep. They actually get blown away in chunks by the heat tool! No idea why. I also cannot explain why the pictures turn out so differently. They were both taken at the same time, same lighting, same location . . .
Anyway, the base is sprayed with mists, then distress inks layered on. They are then embossed on the left with sizzix folders, and highlighted with more DIs, and distressed edges. The mushrooms are coloured with distress inks with an aqua brush. The colours used are antique linen, forest moss, stormy sky, fired brick & vintage photo. To finish, I added coordinating coloured gems and Viva Decor gel dots.

Moving Along With the Times has an ATC challenge, so I'm linking up there. ATC Challenges has a girlie theme (or anything goes) going, so I'm playing there as well. My previous ATC was not well-received, so I hope these get a better reaction. There are still a few more days to play, so I might have a go at a girlie one if I can fit it in.

Thanks for stopping by!
