Ephemera Collage ATC

This is actually a buddy jam swap. A buddy jam is where two people work on the card. First person does the background and the second person adds to it till it looks completed.

I believe it was Jenny Nunez that made the background in round 1 and then I finished it for round 2 and sent the completed card to my swap partner.

ATC's with Machine Stitiching

Today we have two ATC's I made earlier this year. 
I used my sewing machine to add some fun stitiching to each one. 

This first one is an embossed gelli print with book page. 
The stitching is on the book page portion. It's hard to see in this photo. 
The little girl is from a kit at Mischief Circus and the word came from a magazine.
Heat embossed the edges of the card.

 This next one was a gelli print that has some fun stitiching added in swirls with pink thread. 
It was stamped and embossed with butterflies and the word wonder.
 Added doodling and outlining with my white pen.
