Swappin' Barbie ATC

Hi everyone!

I recently joined which has been a lot of fun so far. There is every kind of swap you can imagine from crafty to non-crafty to e-mail and everything in between. One of the most recent swaps I participated in was a Vintage Barbie ATC swap.

Let's see, would I like this swap...Vintage? Yes. Barbie? Yes. ATC? YES. Okay, I was in. Now I just needed to make an ATC for my partner and here it is:

I took pink cardstock as my base and used bubble wrap to stamp on red paint. I had these cool vintage-y style Barbie magnets so I used one of those and then added a phrase from an Anne Taintor book.

One of my newest toys is the iRock rhinestone setter from Imaginisce so I used some of the metallic studs as well. And there it is, the first ATC I've made in a longgggggggggg time. lol

If you like to swap, be sure to check out!
