This ATC came about because I saw Hels Sunday Stamper and she wants you to Pick A Pocket Or Two so decided to put a pocket on one of my ATC’s and add a tag … but not just any ole pocket … an acetate one. It didn’t show up so I stamped onto it with a sentiment still could hardly see it so blobbed ink onto it … not to bad … then the problems started how to attach it … remember it is only 3.5″ x 2.5″. I stitched it on but it looked awful so brain went into overdrive and I decided to add some brown lace around the edges … ah but what idiot didn’t change the white cotton. This was turning into a nightmare but then a lightbulb moment colour in the stitching with Pro markers … mmmm it didn’t look to bad anyway judge for yourselves 😯

It is such a surprise to see these colours when the tag is removed. If you look HERE you can see which ATC I have used this time … only five more to go.

    It’s a beautiful ATC Shirl, so much effort but it was worth it in the end. Love that lace and it does look so different when you take the tag out. Beautiful. Anne x
