ATC Swap

Hi Crafters,

**Looking for my ABC Christmas Challenge Card, then please scroll down**

This is my second post today and I've just popped in for a quick share of my atc's that I made for the swap on Jo's blog.
Our theme was Alice in Wonderland.
I have a CD-Rom from My Craft Studio with some fab images on it so decided to use one of the Caterpillar.


Then I decided to have it as if he was being spied on through a keyhole. I punched a circle in to some black card and hand cut the rest of the keyhole shape, embossed the card and then rubbed on some Pebeo gilding wax in Antique Gold to make it resemble metal. I quite like the effect.


This is a fun challenge and it's great to create miniature pieces of art too.
