Scrapbook Cupboard swap with the theme maps. I colour copied an old Brisbane Street Directory and this made the base for my ATC, I then cut out the shape of a lady and placed a piece of white cardstock behind it that I'd coloured with glimmer mist. The technique of cutting out the image I learnt through a book called "Book & Art: Handcrafting Artists' Books" by Dorothy Simpson Krause ... and what a talented artist this lady is. To finish off the ATC, I inked around the edges in black, added 3 - 4 layers of UTEE to tone down the colours and then added the dymo tape word "missing" with some Tim Holtz mini-brads.
