OK, the quarterly ATC swap at aMUSEme. Two themes. GODDESS - must use your face on the card. I guess I went a little overboard, but is was fun adding all the glitz:
The second theme was UMBRELLAS. At first I was going to do a paper piecing of the Morten's Salt Girl with white micro beads flowing out of the salt box. Too many pieces and I was not happy with the results. Then I saw a lovely stamp online of a beautiful Victorian lady with a parasol over her head. I was going to put lace on the parasol & use Glittering H2Os on it. The stamp came & it was no where near the fine detail as was shown online..poor lady looked like she was possessed. So, I decided to do some more iris folding and got my pattern and folded 16 umbrellas:
No, I didn't put the gold seal & ribbon on mine......the hostess gave me an award for knocking her socks off!! The back of the card reads: The back of the card reads, "Congratulations! Your ATC has been chosen to receive the Hostess Choice Award for the aMUSEme UMBRELLAS ATC swap. This award is given to ONE swap participant for outstanding workmanship. Your ATC is EYE CANDY and knocked my socks off!"
