Sweetheart ATC Swap

It's a day late but never mind! For me it's always time for love and romance. For one reason or another (mainly because I'm so busy with my upcoming exhibition) I hadn't made a fabric-paper collage for a very long time so that was already on my must do soon list, when I discovered Artchix Studio were running a Sweetheart ATC Swap. So no excuses, I made my collage yesterday and today got on with cutting it into ATC sized pieces and addingromantic images and transparencies to it from Artchix Studio collage sheets (the transparencies are all from the Hold Me sheet). I had pre-stamped the calico I used for the collage background with heart related sayings and hearts itself, all in red, which you can just about see on some of the cards.

Vintage images and paper napkins also went into the mix and when I was finished with the ATCs they were mounted on gorgeous watercolour ATC blanks (also available from Artchixstudio), the edges of which were coloured with a pink inkpad. All very pink and oh so lovey dovey, but what else do you expect of a Sweetheart themed swap?
Also very uplifting on a day which began with a covering of snow and deteriorated into wet - and darkness.
