Three more ATC's

Well first off thank you to all those who have added a comment and who will go in the draw to win one of my ATC's. I feel honoured that you all consider my cards nice enough that you would like one! At the moment I have 2 cards to give away, but I may have another by the weekend!

As any of you who know me, know that I love gardens and gardening. I especially love flowers inside. So of course it's understandable that everything I make has a slight floral slant to it! I love being able to pick flowers and bring them inside, I love the perfumes and the colours. I also love old things...... old containers, packets, keys, bits of lace etc... you get the picture? Now although I have made a large number of wall hangings, quilts etc... with a floral related theme, I have never made anything that has an aged theme. This is another area I would like to explore at some stage in the not too distant future.

Anyway here are 3 more ATC's finished. These 3 have been made using tyvek for the flower. I painted both sides of the tyvek, then applied some heat and cut out following the patterns in the tyvek!

I love how the colours came out quite saturated and bright. They were fun to make!

Love your ATCs, especially the one with the green trim, great colour combos! If my name comes out of the hat I'll send you one in return :)

It's SO nice to see wonderful ATC's! I signed on with a couple of different ATC groups & it seems like often times that they're just quickly put together with little thought given to them. It's nice to know that there are good ATC's out there :)
