Blog Giveaway Day 9
OK, it's going to start to look like I'm repeating things now, but actually I have more than one version of several of my postcards and atcs. I will often make a large sheet of some technique and then cut it up into postcards and/or atcs.
To create the background, I used soy silk and textile medium and followed this tutorial at Joggles. After I finished the background, I fused it to a batik with similar coloration and then fused that to a stiff interfacing (like Timtex). I put Razzle Dazzle thread in my bobbin and did bobbin work all over the piece, then cut it up into postcard sized pieces. I added Bonash and foil, then used my embellisher to add the silk flower with balled up yellow yarn in the center.
Remember to leave me a comment if you're interested in winning this.
