Postcard 85...Trade Being Arranged!
(Click on image to enlarge.)
This postcard was made from a background of black linen with heavily painted Wonder Under (Bond-a-Web). It was created shortly after my first machine embroidery class (under Valerie Campbell-Harding). To this with stitched an embellished fragment made from a sandwich of lacy metallic netting and pink rovings and fibers plus an old Girl Scout pin.
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 Dagmar who blogs here. She has also blogged about CYBER FYBER and our trade here.
