My Calendar Girls Postcard for May is for Val.
The base is layered starting with a cheap apricot coloured felt- then a very fine piece of apricot silk and on top of this is a piece of apricot chiffon scarf.
I then stitched over this with the embellishing machine to create a some texture.
The flower is a paper one with a heart shaped metal brad in the centre and the stem is made with strands of wool felted in place with the embellisher.
I echo stitched with free machine embroidery around the flowers as a hilite.
Instead of leaves I have added some tiny feet because the verse in this months calendar says
"People always come and go but friends leave footprints in our hearts"
I hope that you like it Val and it is on it's way already.
