Postcard 71...Trade Being Arranged!

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 am thrilled to be trading with a brand new blogger, Anett, who already has some great photos of her work posted on her blog!
