Postcard 147...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.
The reverse is a piece of commercially printed cotton, signed and dated in free motion embroidery.
I'm thrilled to be trading with Karen whose blog I adore and read here.
