Postcard 9...Trade Being Arranged!
(Click on image to enlarge.)
The base of this postcard was made from a piece of rust colored felt that had been lightly painted, heavily stitched, and melted with a heat gun. This this, two pieces of embellished fabric were added plus a circle of embellished yarn. A charm from an older work, Feminine Beauty, was stitched on by hand. Metallic gold thread was used to combine the elements into one.
The reverse is signed and dated in free motion embroidery on a piece of fabric paper. The fabric paper was made using scraps of late 18th and early 19th text, handmade paper, and metallic paints on unbleached muslin.
I'm thrilled to be trading this postcard with Wendy who blogs here. Wendy blogged about our trade here.
