Postcards

These fiber postcards were made for a post card exchange with a FACES theme.

Technique:  The cards started out as a white Pellon- non-fusible interfacing.  The faces were drawn on freezer paper, then ironed to the interfacing as a resist.  Stamps and  silk screens were used for the backgrounds.  Hair was hand stitched with yarns or machine stitched threads.

The decorative side was fused to card stock then the edges were stitched together by machine with a buttonhole applique stitch.

The only card named  is this 1st image:     “from ONE RARE BIRD TO ANOTHER”

This is for my best older friend.  She is in her 80’s.  It was not part of the swap.  Since I have a parrot,  she often would  look for cards with birds on them for me…. so  this was my ‘thinking of you’ card … just for her.

 Gloria is a rare one!
