isabellasnow rated for AACG: Postage Stamp Person ATC on Jul 10, 2017
Comment: Hi Sharon! Your postage-stamp person is amazing . . Mary Pickford fits beautifully onto the body you chose! My mother loved Mary Pickford so this card is extra special to me. I can't believe you found filmstrip paper--what a beautiful touch! Although lots of swappers despise glitter, I love glittery touches--your glittered flowers set Mary off beautifully! Thank you for another wonderful card to add to my collection.
Response: Kristy, thank you so much, you are always so kind with your comments :) So glad you liked her. Funny thing, the ATC I received was also a film star...Paul Newman lol I loved mine too.Thanks for the lovely rating xx

Comment: Sharon, your trees are beautiful! They are 'doubly' beautiful ;+) Your technique is so lovely--I'm enchanted by the golden stems on the blue-tree background--how did you manage that? The oval frame on the pink tree card is simply beautiful as well. I'm SO glad you're in the Advanced Group!! OH . . . big hugs for the 2 postcards--Moomin! Inge Look! Hooray!
Response: Hi Kristy, thanks for the lovely comments. For the blue tree I used distress inks for the background, then I used a wheat grass stamp which I embossed in gold ink. So glad you liked it xx
