ATC 13...Trade Being Arranged!
(Click on image to enlarge.)
This ATC was created after slicing up an older work called Feminine Beauty. It had been a collage of late 19th century engravings (mostly fans and jewelry) on citron colored linen with painted Wonder Under (Bond-a-Web), bits of lace and millinery net, and metallic foiling. It was heavily hand stitched, beaded, and included couched on pieces of costume jewelry and buttons.
The reverse is a piece of ornate brocade, signed and dated in ink.
