Genesis of an ATC.

A fluorescent orange card, intended for shop displays, coated in a thick layer of acrylic white, smoothed on like icing, leaving a little background showing.

Orange glass paint, dried on my palette and peeled off, became a flower.

Peeled acrylics and fresh acrylic for stem and leaves.

Words - "All that remains is a flower" - written with a sepia calligraphy pen on golden handmade paper.

The whole card brushed over with glass paint frosted medium and sprinkled very lightly with glitter.

A strand of wool soaked in gold acrylic curved around the words and flower.
