Back to vintage....

for this week's swap at Artful Ideas. The challenge was set by Maureen and was to create an ATC using an image transfer onto fabric, the theme was vintage ladies. Well, how could I resist.

I had intended to try out a new technique but in the end stayed with my usual - inkjet printer image, acrylic gel medium, water, forefinger and patience. I made a few whilst I was at it (moving from one to another stops me going too far and ruining them) but realised after some of the images were too big for atcs they will keep for another project. Did a bit of stitching but am a bit limited because my bobbin winder is broken and just can't be bothered to do it by hand and white thread is all I've got!! One of the images I used was from last Friday's ACF challenge, so will be able to post an entry on there too which I haven't managed for a long time.

Very pretty Cindy, I have never tried this technique of transferring images out, but do want to try it.

Hi Cindy I haven't been around a bit as I have been unwell. I have just been checking out your older posts that I missed and I must say for a step out of your comfort zone with the zetti you sure did a fantastic job. I adore your bird puzzle pieces.
Transfer images are something I am yet to try out, yours are very pretty. Take care.
