Spring ATCs

I am terribly behind on posting about the artist trading card exchange (two whole seasons!), much less posting about anything else, but I will totally make the excuse of life being busy. This weekend is the Fiber Arts Festival here and that seems to have inspired me to post again, so today I’ll post about the spring ATCs, then tomorrow I’ll post about the summer ATCs, and Thursday I might post about the fall ones. Thursday is the exchange for the fall cards, so if I get my act together quickly enough I can post about them right away, but more likely I won’t get that post out until next week some time.

The cards I made for the spring exchange were pretty simple. I couldn’t think of much for spring other than flowers, then my mom suggested lambs, and I liked that a lot better. So I needle felted little lambs onto some felt (in poses that are supposed to look like they’re frolicking) and added a little bit of embroidery to fill in the blank spaces, then used blanket stitch to attach another piece of felt to the back and add a little more interest around the edge. These were pretty definitely the simplest cards I’ve made so far, but they needed to be done right at the end of the school semester so I was totally out of energy and time to do anything more complicated! And I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. Here is a picture of them. I didn’t take the process pictures that I usually do with these cause I was pretty rushed to get them done.

I was quite impressed with the other cards this time too. And here are those!

Tomorrow, summer ATCs!
