MissyBDesigns ATC

I joined in on an ATC swap with other members of the MissyBDesigns yahoo group. This is swap #1. I have #2 in my mind and hopefully it works out in rl just as it does in my head.

I love this image from Alexa's Set. She's such a sassy little girl and her attitude reminds me of my own dd :-) The base of the ATC is Rose Red. The patterned paper is from the BasicGrey Phoebe Collection. I wrapped some Chocolate Grograin ribbon around it--I can't believe SU discontinued this ribbon--what were they thinking? I punched out the Whisper White cardstock with my Giga Oval Scalloped Punch and then stamped the girl on it with Versafine Black Onyx. She's colored in with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol--you all out there enabled me and I won a set of 120 on Ebay with shipping for $57 and there are so many color choices that it's a little overwhelming at time. I put some Frosted Lace Stickles on her earrings and the butterfly on her shirt. Each scallop has a little dab of White Opal Liquid Pearls. Finally, I popped her up on dimensionals.

All in all, I really like this one!!! I think it's cute and love how the idea worked and I was able to put what is in my head down on paper. My only thing is how do I get a better skin color on this. Dh commented, "yeah, it's cute but why is it a white chick?" Since we're a pretty multi-racial family, I tend to use darker skin tones for my people :-) I use a lot of creamy caramel but wasn't sure which color to use for my little girl.

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Totally what you did with the border on the scalloped punch! TFS~

  2. adorable ATC...I usually layer blush blossom (no one is THAT white), creamy caramel, and then shadows with close to cocoa for realistic skin tones.
