Hello there, here we're back with Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week we decided to make something different than always 
and limit the size of the projects to a really small which is 

Artist Trading Card

 This thing is so small but cute at the same time! 
Remember the size of ATC is 2,5 x 3,5'' (6,4 x 8,9 cm)

As always you could win a $50 voucher 
and spend it in Simon Says Stamp Store!

We also have a special challenge for children of 2-16 years old.
Here is the link where you can see all the details.

And here is my ATCs set...
Can you believe that it's my FIRST ATCs ever?
I have been crafting for over 6 years now and have never tried it before!
That was a real challenge for me to limit myself to such a small size. 
But you know what? I really love them and it's absolutely not my last ATC. 

OK, here below are some pics of how I made this set. 
I took a piece of a heavy cardboard and covered it with Clear Gesso. 
Then I played with Distress Oxides (Picked Raspberry/Seedless Preverves) 
and finally I splashed it with White Gesso. Love the effect! 
I cut off two pieces of ATC sizes and used the remaining stripe as a border.

I took some circles left from SSS Ring Frame die (thanks, Sandra!)
and inked them with Distress Oxides ans sprayed with water. 
Loved the moon look like effect. 

I glued the borders and stamped them with sentiments from 
SSS Running WIth Your Heart stamp set as well as a very tiny stars. 
Finally I placed the circles and semi circles, 
gave some touches of Nuvo Mousse and added Paper Dolls. 

Here are some close ups:
