'Half Term'





This week we are having a break in the course work on Ratty Tatty Papers so I am having a change and catching up on some ATC swaps that I have committed to,I've managed to complete two sets and have one to go, the set pictured is the Vintage Romance Fabric Swap. Despite my better judgement i have used some vintage lace on a couple, I found it in a charity shop in Whitby, it was very discoloured and I soaked a small piece to see what would happen, it did lighten a little and that is what i used, the pink flower and leaf on the 'romantic' card is from Viv, I am feeling very good letting go of some of my stash - admitted a very small part.

And I'm sure this made a HUGE dent in your stash didn't it??? LOL

These ATCs are so beautiful and your antique lace has given them something special. I know how you feel though - when I have found a treasure I am sometimes reluctant to actually use it. Daft really, when that was the reason for buying it!

Maureen - these are absolutely beautiful... makes me want to try it out.... very inspiring. I love them!

They're all fantastic Maureen! Are your images printed on paper then stitched on, or are they images transfers onto fabric? (hope you don't mind all the questions!) x
