Postcards for March

There seems to be a lot of paper work around here lately! Two of our postcards this month were made on a card and paper base.

Yvonne also included fabric in her postcard collage, which was made on a background of mulberry paper. She added hand stitching with embroidery thread.

Helen's postcard was inspired by an Asian aesthetic. She collaged paper scraps and added metal embellishments.

Maz painted fusible web for the background of her postcard. She added hand stitching with perle thread and an edging of short and long stitch.

You'll have already seen the image in Nola's postcard. It was one of the trees she printed onto cloth with a compressed sponge stamp for her Trees journal back here. She added blended colour with Inktense pencils and some hand stitching with embroidery thread, before binding it with some leftover piping. 

Meanwhile, Cindy decided to have a try at needle felting. She added some hand stitching with variegated perle thread and hand stitched the edges.

So, once again, five very different postcards! We hope you enjoyed seeing them.
