Sure, there’s no real need to work so quickly, but I prefer to have the cards ready before time, just in case there are post-op problems.
I had already planned HOW I was going to work the cards, until………..!
I visited my local quilt supply shop for some overlocker needles, and there on the counter was this dusky pink fabric featuring butterflies and stamps!
What else could I do, but purchase a 15 centimetre strip and change my plans!
On cards number ONE and Three, I appliqued a digitised embroidered butterfly, whilst Card #2 had a dragonfly appliqued to it.
Card #1 also had a butterfly constracted of faux cabochon gem stones, whilst cards #2 and 3 had gemstone butteflies laid under tulle as there were no holes they could be stitched through to the background.
These will be sent to PostCard Mail Art members.
With these three done, I need complete some CQ themed cards and some with an African landscape theme.
Time to STOP reading and start stitching I guess.
