Alright…over the past 3 days I’ve received bunches of ATC’s! Hooray for happy mail! (Although I still think there’s a postman keeping them hostage before giving them to me.)
First up is this beautiful card from @bluebird! Thank you so much! She chose my plant theme and made me my very own little container garden. It’s so cute and adorable and her shading (and container shadows) are so good! I can tell some marker/pen was used. Is there watercolor too or is it all marker?
Alright, the next one had me cracking up. It is so perfect in every way. @fluffypants chose the inspirobot quote and it came up with “occasionally the best thing you can be is annoying.” This card is a treat for the eyes. It’s very dimensional and textured and the little bird peeking his head in the scene is amazing. I smile every time I see this card. Lol. I showed it to my husband and his eyes lit up. SO good. Thank you so much!!
Next up is this gorgeous “Paper Pieced Potholder” from @Reinikka. So…a quilt pattern, but with paper!! She said it is a “gelli print” version which I really ought to look up because all you art journal-type people always mention gelli prints and I have no idea what that is. I really need to google it. Lol. She said it may look simple but if you see it in real life you know it’s not! The precision and exact corners are super impressive! (Just as they’d impress me on a real quilt! Lol). Thank you so much! I love my little paper version of this pot holder. (Which I kinda wanna make in real life now.)
Now we have two cards from @thanate and how cool are these! Fabric! Machine embroidery! Batik!
The first is this little garden which I’m in love with. I might have to make it into a patch and put it on something.
The second was for my daughter with her dragon theme and she made a water dragon! I love the look with the varigated thread. My daughter promptly stole it from me and put it with her “dragon things.” I had to steal it back to grab a quick picture. Lol. Thank you @thanate! I love that they’re both fabric. It’s neat to have such a diverse collection of ATCs.
Bonus…@thanate also included some stamps but they’re all vintage! Lots of 10 cent and 8 cent stamps! I love stamps and these were so neat to look through and study. Thank you!
And for my final share…it’s a little monster from @Kwality570 !! This isn’t even part of this swap but I thought other ATC’ers would appreciate it. We’re doing the Invite Your Partner Swap and she sent me this cute little guy as part of our first package. Isn’t he the best?!
Okay, I think I’m all caught up! There’s something in the post today but I’m not sure what it is. Fingers crossed that it’s another ATC!
