I tried it in both an ATC size (above) and a card size (below)...
I had a great time making these. The backgrounds were created using the Heated Pearls Technique on patterned turquoise paper. All trims are from Flights of Fancy Boutique. The image is a vintage photograph of Theda Bara (Circa. 1920s).

For me, childhood is like an open door to a world of your imagination. Anything is possible and just waiting for you to step through... http://saturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/ to join in on the challenge this week...
(***Please click on picture to see ATCs close-up!***) These wonderful ATCs were made by my friend Gina Atkins. Gina does not have a blog...yet, and I wanted to showcase her fabulous work. We belong to several Vintage ATC Yahoo Groups and trade ATCs. I think you will agree that Gina is an amazing artist.
