Cricut Circle, Pan Pastel, & Frosted Design

Entering this in Cricut Circle challenge to use old and new cartridges, must include at least 2 Cricut cuts.
new- French Manor cartridge ( tag and leaf flourish )
old-  Paisley cartridge ( butterfly )

I'm also entering this in PanPastels challenge: #17 Anything Goes
and
Frosted Design's FB challenge: get messy

I'm always inspired to be a little artsy over at Pan Pastel's blog, so after cutting out the leaf flourish I spread some gesso on then, then swiped them with Ranger lettuce ink, then spritzed them with some glimmer mist and followed up with a swipe of Smooch.

The flower tag center is coated with Puffy Paint and then heated so that it rises. Some brown inking on the edge and then a swipe of acrylic paint along the outside. Pop dotted up over the flourish and chipboard frame.

The butterfly is dotted with the same white paint with fine glitter sprinkled on top.

I hate to admit how long I've been "crafting," but I was using puffy paint (granted it was on tee-shirts) in the late 80s. Wow, that makes me feel OLD!! Of course, I'm sure it everything else is different, because I don't have all those cool new products like Smooch.

You asked (seems like forever ago) about how I bound my tiny ATC sized book. You are right. You didn't see any tape on the outside pages. Imagine two ATCs side by side, decorated on both sides. One side of each ATC will be the OUTSIDE, one the inside. The tape goes on the INSIDE pages only. I hope that made sense and didn't confuse you. I suspect if you think about it for awhile, you will get it! I should have shown both outsides together, since you would have been able to see a smidge (tiny amount) of tape between the two pages.
