Collage Stuff Pink and Green ATC swap

This is my design for the Collage Stuff February ATC Swap. The theme is pink and green.
I glued green cardstock to chipboard and cut out ATC size pieces. This provides a sturdy backing. I sprayed the green background with a gold glitter spray.
I cut up some time cards (new at Collage Stuff) into ATC sizes. Then I used a scallop border punch along one side. I mixed up some Victorian Velvet re-inker with some pink Perfect Pearls plus water in a mini mister. I sprayed the time card pieces with my pink glitter spray. Then I overstamped the pink with a French text stamp using black ink. I didn't want the black text to be too dark, so I didn't ink the entire stamp, just parts of it and didn't press too hard with the stamp. I glued this down at an angle with part extending over the top of the background.
The woman is from the Collage Stuff "Fancy Faces" collage sheet.
I scanned in one of the playing cards from the "Pretty Playing Cards" at Collage Stuff and shrunk it down and printed it out 3 times in a row. I really like these flowers. I glued this column of flowers down to some pink "Education UK Bus Tickets" from Collage Stuff. I thought the tickets framed the flowers nicely. I glued this down at an angle too.
The charm is a "Medium Bee Charm" from Collage Stuff attached with a glue dot.
To finish off this ATC, I used a green Spica glitter pen to highlight some of the edges of the collage elements. I used a bronze Copic marker around the edges and sides of the green base.
In summary, I have to say that I really like making my own glitter sprays! With my re-inkers, I can get the colors I want. I don't own very many punches, but I should use the ones I have more. I really like this border punch.
