More Birthday Postcards and an ATC

Yesterday I was the lucky recipient of three more birthday postcards and an ATC. They are wonderful. Thank you all.

The first one is from SuZ. As usual, the photos do not do the colours justice. The background is a black velvet but because of the FME, Zig Zag stitch and other fibres, looks to be a deep burgundy. The fibres on top have been embellished and then FME over the top. It is certainly a very energetic card.

This card is from Angela. I had seen it on her blog the day before and left a comment and then I received this one! She has called it springtime and it really does remind you of spring. I am surprised that she managed to send it ‘naked’ through the post and yet it still arrived intact.

This one is from Micki. She has trapped fibres, including Angelina Fibres, which shimmer when the light catches them, underneath some net with FME over the top and then machine embroidered lettering on the top. Micki also sent her card as it is.

I also like the way Micki prints the back of the card onto fabric. I must ask her how she does this.

And this ATC is from Doreen in Australia. Doreen has trapped threads under a fine piece of gauze like fabric then worked rows of twin needle stitching which has given even more texture to this piece. She has then finished it off nicely with a gold metal ‘L’.

Take a look at some of the amazing textile work on their blogs.

They are all wonderful. I think my favorite is the spring-y one from Angela. Maybe that's because I'm SO VERY READY for spring.
