Altered Paint Brush

So, there has been all kinds of talk about these little pretties!  I decided I wanted to try my hand at them.  I actually am hosting a swap over at for these.  So far all the ones I've seen are absolutely gorgeous!  The two categories I chose were steampunk and Spring.  The two below are the two that I came up with to swap.
These were so much fun to make!  I will definitely be doing this again!

My first ATC
I decided a while back ago to try out my hand with making ATC's.  It seems to be a fun, new trendy thing to do, and I have to say.... I really liked it!  I made this one with some cardstock in a coral color, stamped it and then used white embossing powder.  I then stamped again and used some perfect pearls for the time piece.  The embellishments are just some lace and ribbon with a couple paper roses and a butterfly punch.  I really like doing these. 

My beautiful baby boy Asa!  We can't wait to meet you!  I'm so in  love with you I can hardly stand it!  When daddy and I saw you on the screen during this ultrasound, you seemed so eager to say hi and let the world know that you are in fact, a BOY!  We are so excited!  You look so healthy and BIG.  Your birthday is quickly approaching.  Only about 8-10 weeks left if you come on time. 
For this LO, I used the beautiful Scraps of Darkness January kit.  It was meant for me and these pics of my boy.  I also used some glimmer glam in mermaid and lots of glimmer mists.  There is some molding paste for texture as well.  The heart was made using the Tim Holtz sizzix die Heart Wings.
