Blog Giveaway Day 3



I painted fusible web and fused it to white felt. I added some soy silk, silk throwsters waste, and cheesecloth over top and embellished. I added some snips of yarn, covered it with a light blue chiffon scarf, and embellished some more. Then I used my circle attachment for my Bernina and stitched circles all over. Finally, I cut it into postcards and satin stitched the edges.

Remember to leave me a comment if you're interested in winning this.

It's fabulous. Love those circles too. Wish I had a 'Bernina' but it would hate me just like the machine I have now so it's probably good I don't have one :)

I haven't worked with soy silk yet, and haven't done a postcard either but would love to hold one in my hands to see how you finish everything.

Well, I don't know why because pink is my favorite color, but I really like the blue ATC on 9/6/08. Looks like 20 others feel the same way. All of your work is beautiful and shows some nice techniques. I haven't jumped in with my felter yet (and have had it over a year) but I think I'll give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration! Sheree

Love this little ATC ... it reminds me of the ripples you see after skipping stones across the surface of a quiet pond. Gorgeous work Cheryl.

The blue is my favorite color. Is this typical postcard size, 4x6 inches? So pretty!
