Fiber ATC's

I actually finished these ATC's early. I really enjoy experimenting with different mediums, but this month I decided to use some left over pieces of fabric from my Revision challenge and scrap basket.For the base I used a sheet of stiff felt and arranged my fabric strips on top. I covered the whole piece with yellow shimmer tulle and did an allover meandering quilting stitch.

I cut the the finished cards (2.5 x 3.5"), stitched each one with an additional linear pattern and satin stitched around the outside edge.

Now I need to get back to fabric painting for the Fibervision exchange and Seminole Stips for the Blockhead exchange.

Hi Rebecca:

ATC stands for Artist Trading Card. I meet with a group of artists to trade handmade cards. Anything goes!

I LOVE to meet new artists and view YOUR blogs. Please leave comments, I really want to hear from you!
