Postcard and ATC

10th September 2014

Have enjoyed a couple of days in my loft space doing a variety of creative crafts...

....my first ATC (Artist Trading Card)....


..the criteria was recycling and include a word....


.....back, a rail ticket!


I also used a birthday card, hand dyed thread and used wrapping paper finished with machine stitching.

ATC's and postcards are swapped within the Be Creative members.

Postcard criteria was to use recycle items....

...my used threads box....


......placed a selection between soluble fabric and stitched....


....rinsed out in warm water....


...love these colours and texture....

.....covered some washers, found on a walk, with threads...

....silver....


...hand dyed...


....stitched onto new fabric....


......using french knots and beads, then attached to card from a cracker box with zigzag stitch in variegated thread.

Tomorrow some weaving.....
