Marie ATC Swap

The site dedicated to swaps with a Marie Antoinette theme has been relaunched (membership is restricted, although there are occasional openings) and to celebrate we have a wealth of new swaps going on.

My favourite swaps will always be for ATCs so of course I clicked to participate in the Marie ATC Swap. The only requirement is that a Marie image has to be used. I decided to combine this swap, with the next Colour Groupies ATCs (colour combo Rose and Cream) as well as with a tag swap, also on the Marie Antoinette group. Sadly however my calculations fell a bit short and I was unable to squeeze any extras out of the background I made, so only 3 Marie ATCs, 3 tags and 3 Rose and Cream ATCs were made. But I was pleased with them all.

You will be able to see the Colour Groupies later once they reach their destinations in September(they are completely different from the Marie ones, apart from the background) as well as the tags but here is Marie in all her glory. Strips of rose themed fabrics were ironed on the Fast2Fuse to make the backgrund, the image was printed onto cardstock, made into stickers, using my Xyron Creatopia and text, a rose embellishment as well as size 11 seed beads were added as shown. Due to the very 3D roses I had to photograph rather than scan these cards but I hope you'll still be able to see the details.
