Well, it's been sometime since I've posted in this category, but I found this little piece of ephemera, a picture of a woman named Mrs. Davis W. Phillips, and a short line about her being the Polio Mother of the Year.  No explanation, no nothing, just the picture and the line.  She looked so full of life, so I had to make her into an ATC.  Her face is slightly blurry because the bow is keeping it from lying flat on the scanner.


I colored her dress and bow in with a dry brush rubbed onto a pastel, I love the soft effect, it looks (in real life) like how they used to do it on photos a long time ago.  Roughed up the edges, and as always, distress inks.  Hope you guys like it!  (I'll try to get a regular picture of it soon)

I hate how scanners protest against 3-D objects but that bow is the perfect embellishment!

I know!  I have a really crappy digital camera that doesn't take a good picture of anything though, so I just scan anyway unless someone comes over with a digital camera to take pictures for me!

I really really love this card. The theme is so strange, but sweet in a way.

I used this tut to help me take better pics-mine were terrible!
