Avocado Green and Tomato Red

It sounds like a tasty idea for a salad but it was this month's colour combination for the Colour Groupies. Of course it is also a complimentary scheme and one that can make you think of Christmas if you're not careful. I hope I have avoided that because who could want Christmas in July? I'm not that keen on it even in December!
I made my cards in a novel way, by locating two fabrics in the required colours from my stash, and cutting them up into little snippets. There were then put on top of Fast2Fuse and ironed on. Free machine quilting was added to hold them in their place. I added images from an Artchix Studio collage sheet dedicated to old match boxes as well as one actually featuring a tomato and stitched them on. Torn strips of a metallic green fabric were stitched over the images and the cards were finished by ironing a green fabric to the other side of the Fast2Fuse and green zig-zag stitching around the edges. I kept the one with the dancing red figure. All the cards have now arrived with Caryl, Debby and Lenna, my fellow Colour Groupies, which is why I can now show them here.

my favorite parts of these ATCs is the free motion stitching you do so beautifully, and the torn strips of fabric sewn across the top! My second notebook of colour groupies ATCs is filling out quite nicely, thank you Frieda! I love when a page is full with one from each of us and seeing the variations -the different "takes" of a color combination. You should have my avocado and tomatoe soon! mmmmm, yummy!
