Postcard 52...Trade Being Arranged!

(Click image to enlarge.)

This postcard was made after cutting up an older piece of work. That work was made as the centerpiece for my first solo exhibition. It was based on architectural elements found in Gothic and Romanesque churches. The piece was created using chiffons on a heat transfer painted base. It was free motion embroidered. The original is pictured here.

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 with Stephanie whose original selection, Postcard # 88, didn't arrive. Instead, the envelope came inside a plastic bag. The envelope seemed ripped open and the postcard removed! I'm likely going to display a photo of #88 with a stenciled sign, "GONE POSTAL". Stephanie sent photos of the damage...I'm going to display these too! Oh, Stephanie blogs here.

Hi Susan, I hope we have more luck second time around, I would really like to trade this one with you. It is harder to choose this time, hope it has a safe journey.

I'm happy that Stephanie is willing to try a second time. Postcard # 88's envelope arrived in a plastic bag, damaged, and without the postcard inside. During the exhibit I'm planning on displaying a photo of #88 with a stenciled sign over it that says, "GONE POSTAL".
