Wine and Olive ATCs

It's that time of the month again, my Colour Groupies ATCs for August have all landed with Tristan, Lenna, Debby and Caryl and I can reveal them here too. The combinations this year feature a lot of food inspired colours and August was no exception. Wine and Olives, yum, yum!

I was looking through my left-overs from fabric/paper collages and found just the right colours and amazingly the collage in question also featured wine glasses and bottles as well as wine labels. I made the collage originally for the September Journal Quilt in 2007 (no, I never throw anything out, the thought alone makes me shudder!!)

So I cut this background to ATC size and layered it up with felt. I then started looking for transparencies to go with this background and when I came across the Temperance one and the Hand (both from Bmuse) I felt they were a great match. The text In Vino Veritas (Truth in Wine) was not far behind and came to me in one wonderful lightbulb moment. It was added with a Dymo writer. The transparencies were stitched on and the edges of the ATC were zigzag stitched in wine coloured thread.

As usual I made one for myself to keep as part of my Alphabet ATC and this one is I for In Vino Veritas. I have missed out some letters but don't worry, I will get around to them in the near future!
