I was recently in the No Paper Allowed ATC Swap hosted by the lovely crafty_dame! This was my second time making ATCs so I was a little nervous, but after making them, I believe I'm addicted! So I decided to start a gallery to make myself do more. I would really love feedback.

So far three out of four of my partners have received so I'll go ahead and post those three first and then the other later. I made them all with felt and embroidery thread, with two of them having flute beads added.

The Lovers - I love tarot cards and have always wanted to illustrate my own deck. I've had the main design of this card (the lovers intertwined forming a heart) floating around in my head for years now. It was great getting to express an illustration through sewing, something I'm excited to keep trying. I kept a few of the traditional symbols in it, including the number of the card (VI or six) and a garden (which represents love being "the impulse to drive us out of the garden and into adulthood").






Dot Dot Dot - I love dots, even the word "dot", so I thought I would dedicate an ATC to them Smiley I really like how this color combination came together.






Rose - One of my favorite flowers AND my favorite Golden Girl Wink I love colors with offset printing on top of them like in old magazines, so that's kind of what I was trying to go with here.

Thanks for the sweet comments Smiley

My last partner received, so here's my other no-paper ATC:





The High Priestess - I get this card drawn for me more than any others so I had to make one for her Smiley You can read more about this card and its symbolism here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_High_Priestess. I wish I had time to put the columns in the background. Oh and sorry if the "cleavage" is cheesy, she looked too young without it Cheesy

I wish I had your patience, Ma Rut.  I get bored after about 15 minutes of doing any one thing.  I wish I didn't... maybe I have ADD or something.  Haha.

They are really lovely!  I love the Dots (I love dots too!) and the Lovers the best.  But they are all fantastic.

These are amazing. I don't have those kind of skillz, yo.  Wink I think my faves are the high priestess and her cleavage, and the dots.

I had to go back and check the cleavage after seeing this post.  Cheesy
Anyway, these are all rather impressive! Well done!
