Flutterby Femmes (ATCs)

                                      ATC 1                                                         ATC 2

It's been more than a year since I have made any Artist Trading Cards (ATCs), and I guess I took a hiatus because of so many other things going on in my life.  Last week I posted a new series of greeting cards I named Flutterby Femmes (just scroll down), and after looking at them I thought how nice it would be to make ATC's to complement them, which I then proceeded to do.  I felt I had lost my touch, but I think they came out rather nicely, and I'm pleased with them. 

Comments and feedback are always welcome - I hope you like these latest cards and I look forward to trading!

Flutterby Femmes

Yes, this is Marilyn!

Sometimes I come up with ideas from looking at collage sheets, and this is what happened to me last week when I came across several collage sheets in Etsy.  I did not realize there was so much talent out there, and I was just amazed the more I looked at all these artistic creations.  I came across two shops - ArtCult and Pink Vintage Studio - with collages that impressed me very much.  I used images from both of these different artists and came up with these cards I call Flutterby Femmes.  I used glitter paper and Spellbinder dies for the wings.  Since there is so much color and detail, I felt a black background was best, thus one can see how the colors just pop!

I hope you like this latest collection of mine, and I appreciate all comments and feedback.

Thank you for looking!
