goodnorevil, your green card is fabulous! i love the stitching and the trim!
corwin, glee club is a great G word, i never would have thought of that! i like the postmark across the image.
AggieGirlKatelyn, the hide card is inspired! what a fabulous idea!
Radegund, i love the hiccups card, the writing in the background is perfect for how you feel when you have them!
KatyMai, that IS supercute! and i love the border you put around the edges.
Twiz, that poor cat! aw! so cute though!
lunanne, i'm glad you like the game card, i finally found a use for some of the game pieces i've been obsessively collecting! and Radegund, the background on the card is a punjabi newspaper, but i believe the writing on the stamp is hindu, since that's the national language of india. punjabi is much more common around here though. the fabric is a scrap from a salwar kameez, or a punjab suit. my sister makes corsets out of them.
clrowi, the lady is the virgin mary (i'm a little bit obsessed!), and i'm glad you liked it!
here's a picture of it -
and yes, the blue gown is embossed, as is the silver frame around her. the rays are gold leaf. the slightly wonky heart is courtesy of my big bite crop-o-dile, which hates me! this card was SO hard to give up, i loved it so much! but i saved the stencils that i created to use for the atc, so i'm going to recreate it as part of a larger piece to hang in my bathroom!
today (rather, yesterday, since it's now 4am!) i received a gorgeous card from karin_!
isn't it gorgeous!? i love all the little details. she was inspired by the "most amazing inspiration boards filled with vintage things" on artsymama's blog. i love it! the vintage trim and the buttons make me very happy, and the design on the back looks like barkcloth! it's fabulous!
thank you again karin_!
