Dana also added some of her own art greeting cards, her 'Lady in Red' is my absolute fave and she's already up on my wall!
I sent Dana a Swiss 'celebrate' ATC

I can't say I've really come across these clips here other than a few pristine ones I was given a while ago.
I decided to try rusting the ones I have.
I read somewhere they can be sanded, dunked in vinegar, then put in contact with an already rusty item and set out in the air to 'cook'
And it worked!! literally within hours!
I like the shape of the ones from Nathalie better but as far as the rusting process goes, I'm thrilled!
now I just need to make something to hang on them!

I also had a go at making an inchie book for both of us, I so loved the one Julia sent me I just couldn't resist trying it out myself. I added scraps and beads to the card squares.
as an after thought I altered a matchbox to keep my set in!

beautiful scraps, beads and a tiny coin
an ATC made by Jen, my favourite colours and such a wonderful combination of textures, I love the little piece of stitched fabric
velvety flowers, lace and a cut-out mannequin

I used an Edelweiss paper serviette, this flower is the unofficial national flower of Switzerland and can be found growing in The Alps. I added a little piece of paper doily around the neckline and some braid to the bodice.
I decorated some of the Edelweiss with beads and used a folded mini version of a Zürich newspaper as the skirt.
