Made by WideEyedLife for my birds at the feeder theme.
Wow, just wow!!!
materials are as follows....
magazine pages
wire, plastic, and
BLACK PEPPER standing in as black sunflower seeds.
I am floored by this wonderful card.
I think it's a brilliant idea and so well made.
I cannot wait to hear the explanation of just how she fused the plastic edges together to create the feeder bottle.
thank you, Jess, it is incredible!!!!

For blupaisan---

I made the birdfeeder using a mini impulse sealer (aka, euro sealer) similar to this one:

https://www.amazon.com/Plastic-Sandwich-Sealers-Extra-Replacement/dp/B01MAW9F87/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&qid=1521843079&sr=8-15&keywords=mini+impulse+sealer

Basically, I just melted together a couple of pieces of plastic (see photo below), leaving enough of an opening to fill it with pepper---then sealed the end up.  Voila--- bird feeder!  Smiley

Wow, there have been some gorgeous, very colorful ATCs.

mandykaye, the colors all just blend so well, in each of the ATCs that you did. The watercolored cat is especially inspiring.

emilywilde, your card reminds me of those fun, black pieces of cardstock, that if you draw on with a special marker, it reveals the rainbow of colors underneath. I'd love to see an entire Halloween collection in this style.

And then there's that crazy birdfeeder ATC! WideEyedLife, you take the prize for such a unique idea. I love the concept. Pepper!? So clever.

Now, onwards to my first ATC in over a year  Grin It is from cmarion3 for my Illustrated Lists theme. She gave me just the kind of card I was looking for. I think the actual hole punches in the card is such a cute touch. And then the playful watercolor and ink is so lovely. The style reminds me of Danny Gregory and I actually had him in mind when thinking of this theme. Then, I was also spoiled with a little extra. It's a textural tag/bookmark. I really love multi-media things with multiple colors and layers. I kinda kept petting this card...haha. Thank you so much!

I'm glad you like it, Susie Apple. I picked the theme and then went blank. Until I just decided to list a few things on my messy coffee table. Then it was easy.
