Now that the above ATC has reached it's destination, I can reveal her. I did an ATC swap with Belinda at Metallic Dreams and suggested we use dolls (what else?) as the theme.
Someone gave me this gorgeous piece of orange/rust quilting cotton with all these beautiful butterflies. Right away, I thought "Butterfly Doll". I can almost feel the warmth of the sun when I look at these colours.
ATCs are pretty small and I was just lucky enough to be able to cut out one of the butterflies to fit. When you have such a striking design on fabric, you can't do much to it if you don't want to lose the design. Aside from the beading around the face, I dabbed on some glitter paint and a few hanging threads for decoration, and that was it.
Belinda is such a pretty name. I decided to name her "Belinda Butterfly".
I haven't made that many ATCs, but so far, I have to say, this is my favourite.
