In a previous post, I showed pictures of some ACEO artist trading cards that I was making. Here is one of the finished ACEOs.
This ACEO is made from over-dyed upholstery fabric and hand-dyed and commercial cotton fabrics. I embellished the front of the card with decorative stitching and hand-dyed cheesecloth for texture. The circle collages are made from commercial cotton, hand-dyed cotton, and silk fabrics machine appliqued to the front. Peltex is sandwiched between the front and the backing fabric to make the card sturdy. I couched yarn over the raw edges to finish the card and give more texture. The card is hand beaded with glass beads.
These cards are so much fun to make. They can be very useful for trying out new ideas before committing to a larger wall hanging.
