Under The Microscope

Continuing her week as guest designer at Paper Artsy Suzz has done three fabulous ATC's. I also did three ATC's and they ended up in the big blue filling cabinet under the desk. Did I give in ... absolutely! A cup of coffee and several Hob Nobs later (which is really bad 'cos it's a new month so start of the diet etc etc) and I was back. I couldn't face another ATC but I still wanted to make something small like Suzz, so I decided to go with a microscope slide. The chalky Fresco's dried really nicely, and I used Zesty Zing, Limelight, and a dash of Beach Hut 'cos I thought the translucents might show through better. 
This turned out OK so I carried on while the going was good. The second one is Autumn Fire and Pumpkin Soup, and the third is Beach Hut and Ice Blue. They've all been edged with silver Treasure Gold. Wow I love the Treasure Gold, I just used a bit on the end of a stubby paintbrush and it went on and on.
I used Mini's 4 & 5 and the girl from At Home plate 4.
Thanks very much for the inspiration Suzz, and thanks for looking x
