My Smallest Ever Art Journal Page

This ATC sized mini journal page was created for the May monthly challenge over on Mixed Media Art Journey.  As usual the roll of the dice gave us six random prompts.
The first prompt was to 'create an ATC', so I used one from my stash that I have ready cut from Sheena's stamping card (2.5" x 3.5").  Another prompt was to 'use orange';  I had a piece of copy paper which had been used as a brayer clean off sheet and added a section which was predominantly orange.  It was sealed with matte gel medium, dried and trimmed.
A third prompt was to 'use a mask/outline'.  For this I used one of Tim Holtz's mini masks (Compass), laid it over the ATC, then went over the ATC with black acrylic paint before removing the mask.
A fourth prompt was to 'add sparkle'.  I couldn't use my sparkle pens as the surface of the ATC was no longer porous.  Instead I used my Cosmic Shimmer acrylic glue to highlight some sections of the compass, then added some of  Martha Stewart glitter in
Fire Opal.
A fifth prompt required that I 'add washi tape'.  I chose several of the design tapes from the Correspondence set (Tim Holtz), to match the theme.
The final prompt was 'free quote'  so I added the stickers from the Small Talk set (Tim Holtz idea-ology) which had inspired the choice of theme in the first place.  As a finishing touch, I went round each sticker with an orange Staedtler Triplus fine line pen.
I definitely feel that this has more of the feeling of a mini journal page than an ATC, what do you think?
