Technique Junkies ATC swap-Leading Ladies

I am thrilled to have finished the ATC's I made for the Technique Junkies perpetual swap today.  My personal goal is to make a set a month, and I usually cannot seem to achieve this.......  It has been a few months.  The swap is on-going, so when ever I have time, I make a set of 5 to 10 ATC's and mail them in to our Swap Coordinator Juliet- in return, I get as many ATC's as I send in- all use some sort of Technique Junkies Technique on them.  For these ATC's, my technique is called Antique Paper.  The stamps are Firecracker Designs by Pamela. I colored them with Copics and used Polar White Flowersoft (FCD) on the fur collar.  The Copic colors I used are in this Blog post from 1/1.  This is the post where I have the full sized card.
Thanks for stopping by!
