Still searching for my "inner ATC"....

I've posted before that I'm not too sure I get the whole ATC thing - but, I decided to keep trying. So here are my latest 3 attempts. All the stamps for these are from "justjohanna".



This first one I call "Belle with Bling". I've written about my infatuation with this stamp before here. I'm not sure why I like her so much exactly, but I do. Here I wanted to fancy her up for a night on the town with her lady friends. I added some small rhinestones and the flower handbag. I cut around the wing with my craft knife so I could slip the handbag handle under. The peacock background is Bazzill paper coated with Versamark and dusted with blue and green toned Perfect Pearls - then "cuttlebugged".












With this one, I was wondering how poodles feel when their owners prissy them up. So here is Fifi le chein, all pink and puffy trying to convince himself and anyone else who will listen the "chicks still dig him".














Here is a floral where I was playing with bleach. I love the bright teal I got when adding bleach to this cardstock (I'll have to play with this more later). The mid layer is actually metallic silver. The make a wish came from my kids. We are in dandelion season here and they call the seed heads "wishers". They blow the seeds and make wishes. As you can imagine, we (and all our neighbors) have a lot of dandelions.

I like your ATCs. I'm working on my first ones and I'm so happy someone else isn't sure she gets them. I'm struggling! But yours are great! Very cute.
