Red and Black ATCs

The colour combination for the Colour Groupies this month was red and black, which I thought would be good to cover Valentine as well although sadly only Debby received it in time for the actual event. But Caryl and Lenna have now received theirs as well so I can post them here, still in the Valentine week.

These ATCs are very much in fabric, rather than mixed media. In fact only the vintage text is paper, everything else is fabric. I used a black fabric, ironed onto Fast2Fuse and machine quilted it with a decorative (hearts!) machine stitch using red metallic thread. I added the fabric image (from Alpha Stamps Shakespeare's Heroines collage sheet) and stitched it on with red zigzag machine stitching and also added red size 11 seed beads by hand. The red hearts are felt and self adhesive. The vintage text was glued on and then black fabric was ironed onto the other side of the Fast2Fuse and the edges of the ATCs finished with red satin stitch.

I made one to keep as part of my Alphabet ATCs and of course this one is H is for Heart!
