Postcard 55...Trade Being Arranged!

(Click on image to enlarge.)

This postcard was made from an old piece created immediately after learning to use my Bernina in a class with Valerie Campbell-Harding. A rather heavy layer of paint was transferred on Wonder Under (Bond-a-Web) to a black linen base. This was stitched using a variety of patterns and then embroidered by hand, including many spider webs.

The back is signed and dated in free motion embroidery on a piece of paper fabric. The paper fabric was made with scraps of late 18th and early 19th century text, handmade paper, and metallic paints on unbleached muslin.

I'm thrilled to be trading with Joyce who blogs here!

Please trade with me for this postcard. I love my Berninas as well. I have made many postcards using the many stitches and beautiful threads. Here's to a great show to start of 2009!
