International mail

I had a birthday last week and every day for the past fortnight I have been receiving ATCs from all around the world as part of Kate North's International Birthday ATC swap.  Every single one that has arrived is beautiful and so many different techniques. I will try and post 6 photos a day so as not to make it too big of a posting!

This first one is from Kate herself and is a beautiful butterfly cut out in relief and is 3-dimensional.  She has also added stitching and beads. 

This next one is from Carol in Wales - painted pelmet vilene -
This one was received from Marina in Spain - not sure how she did her background,but it looks like painted and then enamelled and the ribbon stitched flowers are on canvas.  She also included a couple of crazy stitched hearts..
This card is from Anna in the UK - Anna has made long thin materials beads and put them on a metallic background
This ATC came from Simone in The Netherlands and Simone did a Transfer dyeing and stitched card.
And finally this one came from Gemma, also in Spain and she has hand stitched on a piece of printed silk
 Enjoy and I will put some more up very soon.  Have a good week and take care

I hope you had a very happy birthday and what a lovely collection of ATCs you have received. I have no doubt that the ATCs you have sent out are just as fabulous.
