Oh How Bold Is She? CSF Florrie's ATC

ATCs has become one of my latest fancies, although I have only just started (this is the 4th)! Here I have used Hero Arts 'Woman in Profile' stamp for the Craftswap Forum Florries ATC 'Be Bold' Challenge and decided go with the french flag colours for impact. I stamped the image several times once on white, followed by on blue and red strips of card and aligned them to recreate the original stamped image. The hair and collar has then been stamped on white, cut carefully and coloured with a black ink pad to contrast and depth. Finally, to finish the ATC I decided to add a quote by Emily Dickinson: 'Fortune BEfriends the BOLD' (I have capitalised some letters to show the play on words!) which I typed into the computer, printed and glued to a paper tab. Papermania pearlescent stones have been added to embellish the ATC to signify wealth and bright red lippy! Hope you like the result.
