Postcard 131...Trade Being Arranged!
(Click on image to enlarge.)
This postcard was made from a background of black linen with heavily painted Wonder Under (Bond-a-Web). It was created shortly after my first machine embroidery class (under Valerie Campbell-Harding) and one of the only times I've used the lettering option on my Bernina. It says "endless possibilities"...most of the time. For some unknown reason there are a few spelling errors (must have been a broken thread and incorrect restart!) To this, I added one of my old keys.
It is signed and dated in free motion embroidery on the reverse. The material used on the back is a piece of vintage tone-on-tone blue batik.
I'm thrilled to be trading this postcard with Jacqueline who is part of the Invitational Section of CYBER FYBER and whose blog I regularly read here. Jacqueline's website is here. (I love her music too!)
