SewHelpMe how did you do the acrylic cards? and is it very thick? I can't tell from the photos...

I have a laser cutter/engraver that I used on the acrylic.  It's black acrylic, and it turns white when it's engraved.  I used a touch of Buff 'n Rub wax paste on it to make the white stand out a little more.  The ones I sent are about 1/8" thick (which is still thin enough to fit in those binder pockets).

Thanks for answering all my questions!  Cheesy

crafty_dame where do you get negatives like that? I don't think I've ever seen negatives that weren't brown before... I haven't tried solvent transfers before.. it's on my list of things to try  Smiley

Here's my final no-paper ATC. This one comes to me from neverseenblue. When I received it, I had to PM her immediately to ask if she had been stalking me or something. It is exactly my style and taste and I absolutely adore all things pink and sparkly. So, anyway, I really like it. Unfortunately, my scanner didn't do the best job ever of making an accurate picture, especially on the sequins, so just image it looking about 2x as awesome as the below pic.

All the Pretty Things:


And here's a pic of the card I sent Hardcoremothball without the plastic sleeve covering it.

I received my last ATC in the mail today, from Ma Rut. Isn't it beautiful? I love it... I love roses and they remind me of my dad.  Smiley Ma Rut, you seemed to be able to know what everyone would like.

Sorry I missed your questions yesterday, teamwang and panthermoon - the "scary" card was made from a framework of sticks all wired together, and fabric stitched to the back. The face was traced with fabric crayons (because all my other attempts at image transfer failed Sad  )
But it came out OK in the end! I think this swap was all about experimenting, with a lot of brilliant results!

Aww, thanks panthermoon! I'm glad everyone's liked their cards so far Smiley I didn't stalk anyone really, so it's great that all the recipients relate to their cards Grin

I received from two other partners this week Grin

First, from taloola a lovely stitched ATC:



She stitched two flowers with chocolate brown and olive green thread, a lovely combination Smiley The background is a piece of fabric canvas first decoratively stitched on the edges creating a nice frame, then machine stitched to a backing piece of fabric canvas. I love the little tails she added, it gives the card a whole new dimension Grin Thanks!


I also received from our lovely organizer, crafty_dame!

Not one, but two, lovely ATCs Smiley



I was super excited to receive one of her image transfer cards (scissors on the left). She also sent a really neat card made of bubble wrap, how creative! It appears that she's injected each bubble with a dark purple paint. I want to pop one, but I know I shoulden't Cheesy And really small on one of the bubbles, she attached a little snip of fabric on which she inscribed "art":
