Aqua and Royal Blue ATCs

Another year and another set of colour challenges for the Colour Groupies. Sadly we've lost Tristan but Lenna, Debby, Caryl and I have decided to continue with our monthly swaps, based on a different colour combination each month. I'm so happy as the ATCs produced by my fellow Groupies are simply gorgeous.

The colour combination for this month was chosen by Lenna who always seems to come up with the most fantastic names as well as colour combos.

The background is a royal blue fabric (although not much of it can be seen after all my decorations) which I machine quilted after layering it with Fast2Fuse. I added fabric images from Alpha Stamps Mermaids sheets #2 and #3 featuring beautiful ladies of the sea. I then added seaweed in the shape of a very textured fancy yarn and I also added transparent shell sequins. Vintage quotations were the finishing touch together with zigzag stitching around all the edges of the card.
And you might have thought I had forgotten about my Alphabet ATC project (okay, yes, I did for a while) but I'm back on track now and the one I made for myself to keep is of course called M is for Mermaid and the image is from Alpha Stamps Mermaids #3 sheet. You can see it above.

Your color group projects are always so fun and inspiring! I love these, the fancy yarn is a perfect stand in for seaweed!
