Under the Sea


In the group Fabric Postcards for Stitchers the May theme is "Under the Sea" and this is my card for Liz.
I started with a piece of Nuno felt that I had made last year and added some hand made cord that I had made on the overlocker for the seaweed.
I also added a school of fish that I made from a leftover piece of FME and a gold fish charm.
Then I added a piece of blue silk organza over the top of all this and finally I added more of the cord (seaweed) and some shells then sequins and French knots to represent air bubbles.
I am rather pleased with the outcome and I hope Liz will be also.
