Postcard 6...Trade Being Arranged!
(Click on image to enlarge.)
This postcard was made from a piece of an older embroidery called "Feminine Beauty". Late 19th century engravings were applied to linen ground with painted Wonder Under (Bond-a-Web. This was heavily embroidered by hand. Many beads, charms, and pieces of costume jewelry were applied.
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 this postcard with Anne of Birds of a Feather whose website is here.
