Colour Contrast Challenge ATC


I took part in a colour contrast challenge. We were paired up and each pair had to make an ATC to swap using only two colours which we were given. Our colour was Burnt umber and Teal. I did not have any fabrics in those colours so decided to use fabric paint. I had done dome paper castings of a leaf tile which was exactly the same size as an ATC so I chose that. Once painted I sealed it with matt medium and then free machine quilted onto felt. I hand stitched the backing on and then glued the tiny beads to it.

Oh this is lovely Carol. I love the leaf and it works so beautifully with the colours.

Beautiful! I love the color combination, and you did a wonderful job with the paints, the stitching, everything!
