Postcard 16...Trade Being Arranged!

(Click on image to enlarge.)

This postcard 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 off-white vinyl. I used polymer emulsion to glue the front to the back in order to secure threads snipped when the original work was sliced. It is signed and dated in ink.

I am thrilled to be trading this postcard with Purple Misses whose artwork will also be part of the Invitational Section of CYBER FYBER. Her blog is here.
