Couple of ATCs



Hope you are all well. Here are a couple of ATCs that I have made today. They are for a swap that I take part in over at Craftycardscrappers. The theme was Emerald so be ready for loads of Green lol!!!This one I decided to do differently for a change & I cross stitched the image. I have had itchy fingers for weeks so it was great to have a reason to get my needles & threads back out again. I created an aperture as I am not a great fan of the Aida sitting on projects. I prefer it to be neater. To stop it looking too plain I added a Jolee Boutique flower & a mini bow with a gem in the centre.

The 2nd one is following the sketch & recipe from SWTD. Quite a simple ATC, I decoupaged the bear. Then I added the ribbon & butterfly. x Clare x
