Twinkling ATC

On the ATC_World yahoo group, we were discussing the virtues of Twinkling H2Os versus other paintable mica powders.  Finally, one lady pointedly hinted to me that she would love a sample to see in real life.  I generally avoid people who request cards outright without even an offer of a swap, but I am feeling benevolent in my old age - I have thousands of ATCs, and make them because I enjoy making them, and certainly not because I want to have more of them to store.
The thing that I love about twinks is that they are more like watercolor paints with a little sparkle to them than they are mica powder.  You can't see the sparkle at all in this scan, just the pigment.  You get the transparency and shading of a watercolor.

The tiny tag is resin, I think.  I complimented another ATC maker a few years back on how cute a similar tag looked on one of her ATCs, and she sent me a packet.  I love how cute they are, and how well they take ink.  Unfortunately, I hate to use them, because I have no idea how to replace them.  I shouldn't hoard my goodies, I know.

The bird image is from SweetStamps, and the kanji is from TAC.
