Remember the fibre postcard swap? Well, this is what I got from my mystery partner.
The mystery turned out to be my good friend Belle, and here is the reverse of the card.
Notice the stamp and the hand franked mark, aren't they just right?
I love the card, it is exuberant and free and ust gorgeous, lovely colours and excellent machime embroidery stitching (makes mental note to practice same).
What I need to know Belle, is how was it stiffened? It is slimmer than the last one and sturdier. Anyone got the 'perfect' material for stiffening postcards? What do you use?
This is the pc I sent to Jo
It is needlefelted with embroidery and taken from a piece in Stitch with the Embroiderer's Gulid.
One of the things i like most about Belle's pc is that they are her own invention. This is my first one and definately copied from someone else's idea. The needlefelting was a little fragile (needed more needleing) and so i posted it in an envelope. Belle's also arrived in an envelope but she had the foresight to get it franked first, which I did not :o(
I like these little pieces of art and I will be making more :o)
