I used a rubber stamp from Stampotique called Smile for this ATC. I used gesso and a stencil to create a spot for Smile's face. I then drew a circle with water color crayons and blended a shadow around the outside of the circle. It created almost a frame. I distressed the edges of the ATC with sand paper and ink.
I am entering this ATC in the following challenges:
Stampotique - #125 one layer
Wicked Wednesday (6) - anything goes
