A lonely servant / Yksinäinen palvelijatar

Try it on Tuesday has a challenge this week: Layers. After trying my hand in layers last week with the flower card I now tried how many layers I could pack onto an ATC card without it getting too thick. Thickness is no merit here - it gets cumbersome to mail.

So I used thin layers and lots of blue (I love blue):
I wish I had someone to talk to.

from bottom to top:
- blue button print (from a haberdashery bag)
- two layers of sewing pattern paper
- stenciled lace pattern (blue)
- lace
- images and text
- buttons

I am entering this also into:
Country View Challenge: Blue.
ATC around the World #11 : anything goes.

I have found lovely vintage underwear buttons on local flea markets, see above. Some are normal size, some are tiny. I wonder what could they have been used for? Baby garments? Dainty ladies undies? People must have had smaller fingers, I know I couldn't button it up.

Osallistuin haasteeseen, jossa pyydettiin monia kerroksia. Ylläolevassa on ainakin neljä, useampikin jos ottaa kaikki pohjakerrokset huomioon.


  1. Hieno kortti. Tykkään tuosta rauhallisesta värimaailmasta siinä ja tuo teksti jälleen herättää ajatuksia. Asiasta toiseen; Mulla on sun joulukalenterisi lähetysvalmiina, eli laitatkos minulle osoitteesi tulemaan niin voisin piakkoin sen jo sinulle postitella ;)
