A Postcard Making Day







Today I made 3 postcards - 2 of which are birthday postcards for members of Fiber Art Friends and the other one is for Gunnel. The top 2 are made with the fusible webbing and the muslin that I painted the other day. I ironed the fusible webbing onto some previously painted fabric, added some muslin and machine made cords - and a little bit of handstitching. I quite like the texture that the fusible web has made - and adding the muslin doesn't take away from it. The other card was made with the embellisher - lots of different yarns and other bits and pieces of fabric - then I did some free motion embroidery over the top.
