A Mother's Love Grows
This atc starts with a background swap piece (for those who don't know... at our in-person atc swaps in Des Moines we have an on-going background swap... you put an atc background, or a few, into the bucket and take out however many you put in and then create with it to make a finished atc). The background was two printed papers, one torn and layers over half of the other. I stitched around the edge and inked. I stitched a "stem" for the flower. The leaves are a Wendy Vecchi image (the image is actually 3 leaves on a stem) stamped onto grungepaper that has music paper glued to it, cut out, colored, I cut off two leaves and sewed them onto the atc. There is doodling/dots along the right side in both black and white pen. The mother/daughter image is from dezinaworld... I punched it out and inked the edges. I punched a second flower from cardstock... inked it and added details with a white pen. A Mother's Love Grows is computer generated. The "A Mother's Love" banner is left over from a swap (I haven't shared those atcs yet) and then I added the word Grows.
