Sewn ATC

 This month's theme is "Sewn", we were told we weren't required to actually sew. I thought it was easier to sew than not.
Started with die cutting out heart shapes from a sheet of Double Saran & Watercolor Sprays technique. Embossed it in a Cuttlebug embossing folder and colored the surface with gold metallic rub-ons.
I tore the heart in half then sewed them back together using a decorative stitch on my sewing machine to resemble suture stitching in black thread. Did a straight stitch in black near the outside edge.
The background of the atc was done by laying manila folder down into gold Lumiere paint and twisting a bit before lifting off the paint. the paper strip is decorative paper that was embossed in the same embossing folder as the heart and inking the raised surfaces with black archival ink.
