Eyes Wide Open ATC


The dream stamp is from Quietfire Design, it's the mini size found in this set.  The girl image is from Dezinaworld and can be found on this page.  The background is Ranger's sticky back canvas, atc size...  I sprayed it with Color Wash, dried it, stuck it to cardstock, trimmed it a little smaller than an atc, stamped it with a large map image (Stampin' Up), sewed it to a cardstock atc blank, and sponged some Distress ink around the edges.  Cut out the girl image and glued it to the atc.  Stamped Dream.. on a scrap of cardstock, cut it out with deckle scissors, sponged edges with Distress ink, and glued it on.  Glued German Scrap along the bottom.  The butterfly is rub-on that I had terrible trouble with.... I could not get it to stick down - it just kept pulling back up taking the top layer of the image with it... I finally gave up, pulled it up, cut out the butterfly and glued it down with matte medium.... tried to hide the mess I'd made by coloring around it with a glitter marker, lol.  The flower is shrink plastic... I have several that I made years ago... added a glitter sticky back gem to the center.  Glued the whole thing to another atc blank to sturdy it up and hide all the stitching on the back.
