Postcards I sent


Recently I participated in a postcard swap with Lynda and Maureen and I can show you now the ones that I sent to them as they have both received them now.
The first 2 went to Lynda-the pink and purple one on the right is a hand felted nuno felt piece that I have stitched with gold thread and the one on the left is a piece of my hand dyed silk that I ran through the embellisher(an experiment) which gave it such amazing texture-I then did some hand stitchin on it.
If you click on the link below you can take a peek at the ones I received from Lynda.Sorry about the big link but that is the only way I could figure out how to post it - but it will take you there

This is the card that I sent to Maureen-I did this on the embellisher and then stitched it on the sewing machine.
I hope both ladies are happy with them.
