More ATCs

This ATC set is from 7Gypsies, it comes flat with 12 cards and when made up, is in the style of a matchbox. It took me absolutely ages to decide on a theme & I finally settled on 'female'.

Using an Anna Griffin background stamp & green ink, I stamped the 'holder' part of the box before making it up; I used Marah Johnson 'Dare To Dream' papers to decorate the outside box cover. Most of the cards, except for the last set, feature K&Company papers and the images are all from art-e-zine.

I'd already done 2 cards before deciding to loosely group them in 3s -- child, woman, crone... though the last set doesn't really fit that. The common thing in the first set of cards are the metallic accents.

For this set, I covered the cards with fabric, accenting them with buttons, paper lace, shiny hearts and gems

The little girl's dress and hair are covered with starry-fabric as is the flower; the lady has a brass flower on her dress and the older woman is framed with gold cord.

I didn't have a suitable 'old woman' picture to use, so opted for 2 sets of twins instead. Used more of the Marah Johnson papers and paper flowers for the little girl.
