The ribbon atc swap is finished

Well now, remember this tangle of ribbons? Debbi, Annie, Doreen, Ann and myself all got a bunch of them to use on our June ATC. This swap would prove interesting because we all had to use the same items, but we could make whatever we wanted. We could also use as much or as little as we wanted.
They are all great, and all are different! Thanks girls for a challenging swap month!

Here is Debbi's, she has woven her ribbons to make a background.
Quite effective don't you think?

The next one is from Annie, who has used her ribbons in her background, I'm
not sure what she has done with them, they look as though they have almost been fused together, but she has made a landscape with them, pretty cool!

Then there was Doreen's, and it looks like she has chomped hers up to use as a
background fabric, held in place with lots of stitching. It looks jam packed with
ribbon! Great card!

No: 4 was Ann's. She has made a creative collage and added a small amount
of ribbon for accent. She has made an ATC with a purple theme, and used the purple
ribbon. I love the 2 girls!

And last here is the one I made. I fused the ribbon to timtex, and used it as a background
to stitch things to.

Thanks so much to you all for your ATC's, I loved all of them, didn't we do well!
I am working on the next swap now!

My Mother always said "self praise was no recommendation" but what the heck--I think we did a fabulous job.

I am amazed that each piece is totally different. All are SO beautiful! Did you gals compare notes first so you all didn't do weavings? ha!
