Thank you for visiting artful embellishments. This is the third year for this blog and I am so happy to keep publishing. I started in 2011 and began with a quilt of the week, this lead to the leaf of the week for my newly designed paper tree that is located on the wall of my garage in 2012.......2013 is going to bring a lot of excitement and positive change. As a personal challenge for 2013, I plan on designing a artist trading card each week to be featured on the blog.
With so many interests, there will be quilting, art quilting, leaves (and more leaves), as well as experiments in thermofax screen printing, fabric dying, and tons of DIY recycle projects. I may even enter that altered fashion scene. To a happy and healthy 2013, may we all find happiness in those things we create....thank you for stoping by artful embellishments.

ATC 20 Blessed

This ATC was done by using a larger sheet of the Fabric paper and decoupaging all sorts of images, then cutting the card.  The Sizzix die cut actually has an ATC die which is awesome, it is the perfect size and has nice rounded corners. The image is from Art Chix and the music is from an old hymnal. The actual background fabric paper came out really interesting. In the background there is old text from a book, this is covered by colored tissue paper, so you can barely notice it is there. The purple "flower" isn't a flower at all. It is an alcohol ink that was splashed onto the fabric paper prior to the glue drying. I think it made an excellent addition. I used a decorative stitch on two edges of the card.
