ATC Swap

I have made 3 atc's to swap out with members in a group that I am in and wanted to share pics. With each one I tried a different method, first one I used foil and black archieval ink then added some foam pieces, second I used luminere paint on paper towel and sealed it then stamped a moon and stars on it and hand stitched and last I used a inkjet transfer pic that I had and frayed the piece of fabric it is on. I really enjoyed working on these....have a good evening.

decided to try to put in fabric a Tennessean' dream of a I made the field out of orange and the post and yd lines blue. Then added mountains using fabric, texture magic and fabric paint. the sky was all shades of blue and was a challenge to only use those colors but all in all I think it came out ok. I used a white marking pen for the numbers and I wished that I did not but it was already too late so I will know next time that it is not good to use for something like that.
