ATC Exchange

Lynn Krawczk from Smudged Design Studio is at it again...enticing us with participating in another creative adventure!  This time it was an ATC exchange!  Only criteria you needed to do some type of screen printing on your card.

Last summer I had Lynn make me two thermofax screens using some blueprint designs created by my friends father.  You can see those on my post here.








I had some  Dura Textile canvas that I painted with acrylic paints.  Once dry, I screen printed using this  thermofax screen on top of the painted canvas.



I sandwiched batting and a playing card for the back, then machine stitched the edges.  I punched holes at the top so I could add a charm on each ATC and here they are!  I made 12 of them, which was the limit in the exchange.  I'm really looking forward to getting the exchange cards!


We should be getting our ATC's after Oct. 4th...I'm posting this before I receive mine but will post pics as soon as I get mine in return!


 What fun is this!  If you haven't done any ATC's in quite sometime, why not start an exchange with a few friends!  Always a good way to use up those scrap quilt pieces or to play with a new technique in a small way!
