Big Hair Marie Antoinette ATCs


I'm still staying with the rose theme as the background I've used for these ATCs is the same as that for the Roses ATC Swap that I showed you in an earlier blog.

This time the ATCs are for the Big Hair swap on the Marie Antoinette Swap site I'm a member off. The theme was big hair i.e. to use a picture of Marie where she displays her magnificent tresses.

I found just the picture and to make it even better it also featured roses in her hair so went very well indeed with the fabric/paper collaged background made with roses. I printed out the image onto iron-on fabric sheets (from Crafty Computer Paper) on to which you simply print the image, remove the backing paper, and then position the image where you want it and iron it into place. So simple!

I added the text (en francais, naturellement!): les cheveux profonds. I also added a pink self-adhesive sparkly heart, then layered the cards with pink paper backing, and zigzag stitched around the edges with pink thread. All the cards are subtly different, because the backgrounds were cut from different parts of the fabric/paper collage but this one gives you the general idea!
