Postcard 30...Trade Being Arranged!
(Click on image to enlarge.)
This postcard was made on a piece of peach silk to which scraps of material were applied with metallic zigzag stitching. On top is a scrap of fabric made from an older piece of heat transferred fabric. The design was based a stained glass quatrafoil and applied as a positive and as a resist. It is embellished with free motion embroidery using variegated threads.
The postcard is signed and dated in free motion embroidery on the reverse. This side was made from a piece of fabric that "cleaned up" some blue, teal, and purple dying.
I'm thrilled to be trading with Susan to has a Flickr account here.
