Grungy Monday 35

So I had to do some ATCs yesterday for a corrugated Valentine swap and I thought I would incorporate the Grungy Monday challenge of the week along with this one. Linda over at Studio L3 has challenged us to do a Tim inspired ATC!! It's right up my alley. 

I used Tim's distress stains to stain the cardboard first and then tore some of it to expose the inside of the corrugated cardboard. Then I cut the butterfly out of one of Tim's movers and shaper dies and also used the cardboard for that as well. I sprayed that with the Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. I drug a paintbrush across the top with white paint and then used a template of Tim's heart die cut to paint the heart. The "Love" stamp was from Michael's dollar bin. I used some really thin wire to make the butterfly's antenna. I topped it all of with Ranger's Perfect Pearl spray.
