The Artist Trading Club ... 'Swap Til You Drop' challenge for this month is 'Mini Dress It Up' guested by Margaret who hosts the monthly Dress It Up challenge on her blog Alice and Camilla. Margaret has a tutorial on her blog where she shows in very easy steps how to make a paper pocket.
To make a pocket ATC you need to start off with a rectangle of paper measuring 13cm x 19.5m, then follow Margaret's paper pocket tutorial above - easy peasy!
For the ATC pockets I used old music sheets and one old book page (for the green dress). I inked around the edges with Distress Ink and scalloped the edge of the pocket with Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge Sizzix die (called Brackets)
The amber and pink dresses, I rubber stamped onto and for the rest, I covered the card base of the dress with fabric.
I rubber stamped some mini mannequins onto tissue paper then applied them to the corner of the pockets with Liquitex gel medium (except the green one which I just rubber stamped directly onto).
To finish them off, I machine stitched (roughly!) around the four sides of the ATC.
What a lovely challenge - and a great pocket tutorial from Margaret too!
