Saturday's workout "Sew an ATC"




The theme at SaWo is to sew an ATC. As I don't have a sewing machine I had to do it by hand. I really enjoyed it and made two while I was at it. The background is silk fabric. I stitched around it in metal thread, painted it with mostly Lumiere paints, then collaged and embellished with bit of lace, metal, beads, fabric flowers and various other bits and pieces.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
