Valentine Artist Trading Cards




These are some recent Artist Trading Cards that I have made for swaps. One was for a heart theme, and the other one was artist's choice, but I liked the heart theme, so went with it. The three cards that are side by side were made by sewing a handmade collaged paper on top of another collaged paper. Then I added the heart brad. The set of 4 was made on a water-color and salt background paper that I made. I also made the heart papers, and I made the beads from hand dyed paper towels wrapped with wire and seed beads. I also sewed on decorative yarns to each set. I am kind of into hearts now--you just can't go wrong with them!

We make in Germany a heart-swap, too. These hearts are very nice.
Your blog is beautiful, I'm happy to find it.
