ATCs are one of my favorite things to do. This one was for a swap at the Ilion, NY gathering in February. I used Copics to color in the image. I'm still in the process of learning how to shade. One minute I have it and the next I don't. I really enjoy coloring so I'm not giving up. I used Crystal Effects on her lips for glossy lipstick and a jewel in the center of the flower in her hair for a little sparkle. Her necklace is half pearls. There were 24 in the series.
Her dress is MS micro beads (found them on the clearance rack at TJ Max). It was the first time I had ever used beads and I really enjoyed it but I swear they multiply and have legs...they were all over. From what I read using the right adhesive is key and from what I experienced, they' re right. I see a little glare in the photo so I probably should have taken it out of the sleeve but I didn't want to take a chance on having to round up any run away beads!
