Stars-ATC, originally uploaded by cuddle_buddie.

Here's my latest ATC... This was actually my first design idea for the Vintage ATC swap, until I saw that Marie Antoinette collage!!

I used a stamp from the Crafty Secrets Kewpies stamp set... You know... I don't really like dolls too much- but it's because they scare me!! But I just LOVE kewpies!! But I don't like trolls.... I must just be weird!
Anyway, I distressed the edges of the paper with Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint. The moon stamp is actually a tile stamp, but I just colored the moon part of it with a yellowish marker to only get the moon on there. There is perfect pearls swirled behind the stars that are raised with foam tape. The stars were punched out of paper I glittered with Stickles. The bunny has brown flocking on it and the palest pink glitter highlights Ms. Kewpie's flower band and dress. All other coloring was done with Copics.

It's funny, but I don't think any of the stuff I've made looks very good in the pictures!! The glitter doesn't catch the light the same... the colors aren't as bright, the stars don't pop out as much, and you really can't touch the flocked bunny on this in a photograph!! PS That's a moon in the upper left hand corner! :)
