Artist Trading Card - mounted for framing

This is one of my Artist Trading Cards that I have mounted on a buttery yellow parchment cardstock and matted in a dark green mat.

This ACEO (which means ‘Art Card Editions and Originals’) measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches and the card has a fabric backing which is signed and dated. It is mounted on archival double-sided tape so that it can be easily removed from the mat.

The ATC itself is a collage of green and black fabrics, fibres and threads and and some free motion stitching an hand beading. It has a thin metallic black cord couched around the outer edge. This can be framed in a plain black 8x10 frame or displayed on an easel, as in the photo.
