These two ATCs are for the 'Jade+2' swap for August. The one of the left I made and sent to Christine in the UK and the one on the right was sent to me from Lorna in the UK. Don't you just love her embellishments - especially the little sisha mirror.

Jade + 2 swap ATCs by Cobi

I made these 2 ATCs for August's Jade + 2 swap.
The one with the beaded curl went to Sheila in Scotland.
The one on the left is available for swapping.
I used hand dyed cotton and layered several colors of organza on top until I got a color I liked. I used my green bead soup to stitch on the beads. These bead ribbons are fun to stitch once you get the hang of them. The look great in cq work as well.
