* Vera Lane Studio: Be Sparkly ATCoin


This month at Vera Lane Studio Facebook group our monthly swap is an Artist Trading Coin swap with a decorated envelope. The theme is monochromatic or Anything Goes. I went with the monochromatic theme. 

Here is my Coin:

I used one of the pretty Fleur Fairies for my coin. I coloured her with Copics and gave her some white highlights. I used Glossy Accents on her eyes and Crystal Stickles on her dress and hair. The background is from a gelli print and I added some stars from the creepy cute Tinker Sisters set. The sentiment is from the gorgeous Sprinkle and Sparkle set.  I must have 3 or 4 circle die sets and not one of them is the correct size for ATCoins, so I die cut the gelli print and matted it onto a black card circle cut out with a circle/compass cutter. I went a bit wonky when adding the border with a black fine liner pen :)

Above is the envelope for sending my ATCoin and card to my swap partner. I went with a gelli print which has washi tape along the base and collaged Vera Lane Studio images from 3 sets: BowBee Collage Sheet, Circles and Stems Collage Sheet and Planner and Journal Cards Set. The top right corner needs to be left blank in case this goes overseas as the postal stamp is quite large. If it goes to someone with in the Uk more collaged images can be added.
