Postcards for June

We swapped postcards as usual this month and what a diverse lot they were!

 Carol's postcard was made on a base of Lutradur, painted with Lumiere and heated, mounted on card. She added sun-printed and block printed fabric layers, metallic net and running stitch, before edging it with straight stitches.

Jan's postcard was embroidered like last month's.
The image is based on her drawing of a wooden form by an artist, hand embroidered onto linen with the edges turned in.

Nola's postcard, Autumn Rain, has a background of marbled fabric using transfer dyes that she made with the group back here in 2012. She added strips of organza, with running stitches, and a machine embroidered leaf motif, hand-stitched into place. The edges were turned under.
Yvonne's postcard had a painted cloth background, with frayed painted and hand-dyed cloth, couched yarn with whip stitch and running stitch. The edges were hand couched yarn with hand-stitched straight stitches.

All very different!
