Fabric and Fiber ATCs

I've completed another lot of ATCs as well as one for my 100 ATC project today. These are for a Fabric & Fiber Swap on the AdvancedArtistTradingCardsUK Yahoo group. I'm a not very active member of this group but whenever the word fabric pops up I pay a bit more attention and I could not resist the temptation to sign up for this one. There are quite a few non-UK members by now and this swap is actually hosted by Cindy in the US so still no UK postage. Never mind, I simply know the returns are going to be wonderful.

The background for these ATCs is a lovely soft blue velvet fabric (from Cabbage Patch Fabrics) which I machine quilted in straight lines. To this background I added the images (all from the Blue fabric collage sheet by Divasdeste), by sewing with a transparent thread. I also sewed on the vintage lace trim. The rose embellishments were added by hand with an additional blue bead in the centre. Suitable vintage text was glued on. Finally I decorated the edge with a fancy knitting yarn which was added with zigzag stitching and the card was then layered with watercolour paper and stitched on.
Of course I could not resist adding a similar card to my 100 ATC project which is definitely nearing its end now. This is card no. 84, entitled: Alluring. Made in the same way as described above.
