July Dusty Attic ATC Challenge ~ {Trinkets & Treasures}

 I'm always excited to see what the new challenge theme for the Dusty Attic ATC challenge will be for each coming month.  This month (July) has such a fun theme ~ "Trinkets & Treasures".   I wanted to go with losts of gems and glitter for this one.
 I began with the ATC Frame Set #4.  I used a whole bunch of heat embossing metalic powders to create a kind of aged metal patina.  I then used the Morrocan Design chippie as a backing for my cameo piece (Cameo is from Websters Pages).  This piece I coated with some 3D metalic paints (Scribbles) and different colors of Stickles glitter glue.  And finally to give the ATC more opulance, I added a variety of adhesive gems.
Here are the Dusty Attic pieces I used for this project....
There's still some time this month to play along in the challenge and have a chance at a nice Dusty Attic prize!  Here is info you'll need for the challenge (this link is for the swap and for the challenge....it is not necessary to enter the swap, you can enter your ATC in the monthly challenge and still have a chance to win :)

Well, you know I am trying to pick my mouth up off the floor. This is so pretty. I didn't know there were frames for ATCs. I love the metallic look you created here. Now I must go back and look at it some more!
