The theme for our April ATC swap was graffiti. I received some fantastic ATCs for this theme:

For my ATC I used a free online graphics program to create the font and then printed onto canvas. This is the blurb that was attached to the back explaining the process:

Graffiti

…is a social comment in a public arena.

This ATC was created using a free Graffiti making program and reads ‘Tread Lightly’. It was printed onto canvas fabric and then fused to pelmet Vilene. The hand embroidery stitches across the centre are Knotted pearl stitch (http://www.needlenthread.com/2012/08/knotted-pearl-stitch-video.html) and a simple running stitch and French knots to add texture. The edging is a machine made cord attached to the edge. Like most graffiti it is bold and brash.
