Inspire Me Thursday - Tiny Flowers ATC

I had no idea that something this small would take so long to do! My hat's off to all you prolific ATC-ers! Anyway, here's my feeble attempt at Misty and Melanie's Inspire Me Thursday challenge. Check out their site for links to more ATCs.

I like your ATC! It looks like it took a long time. And when I got out my ruler and X-acto, I was stunned at the actual size.

I used to be a graphic designer, and business cards are 2x3.5 and, I know it has been awhile, but, this is small, and that was the most challenging thing.

I chose to just draw something, but I plan on using collage, decoupage, and more embellishments the next time.
p.s. I enjoy visiting you every illustration friday, but the numbers are insane. I sort of feel like I have nothing to say that isn't already said...I like the song post, especially, the hint of a sheet of music. Nicely done.

I love the colors Carla. They may be small but I have seen some fantastic ATC's. There is a place in Columbus OH who had an exhibit of ATC's from around the world.
Their was pictures and an article on it in the magazine I had written you about. Bound and Lettered.
i know what you mean about keeping up. I may have to skip some weeks because i have some commissions coming due and planning two weddings. I subscribed to bloglines the news feeder and that does help streamline things a bit. Now to rush off to work so talk with you later

It's beautiful - I just wish the scanned image was a little bigger so I could see the detail better.

Carla, this is just beautiful! I am SOOO with you on the ATC thing. I think those tiny little things take just as much work for me as larger pieces. It is all the small, tiny things I guess. Anyway, I dont do them too often, just for this challenge. Yours turned out fabulous and it is always fun to try something new!! Brandi
