I had a few sticky back foam sheets that begged me to cut out a flying insect shape. Ah, ha! Serendipitously I happened to lay it near the little vine block and flying insect post cards were off to a flying start.
I drew around a 4"x6" post card five times to establish where to place the stamp prints and here is how the postcards developed. (Only 5 card shapes would fit onto the remnant of fabric or I would have stamped more.)
|Vine and Insect Stamp|
|Acrylic Paint Mixed and Fabric Medium Applied with Fabric Sponge|
|Repeat Images Stamped onto Hand Dyed Fabric|
|Fabric Layered onto Low Loft Cotton Batting and Stitched|
|Free Motion Quilting in Progress|
|Establishing Where to Cut the Image from the Fabric|
|Cutting the Post Card Image from the Fabric|
|Ironing Fusible Webbing to Post Card Back|
|Fusing the Front to the Back between Folded Teflon Sheet|
|Final Set of 5 Post Cards (after zig-zaging edges closed)|
Always remember, never fear to experiment.
Sometimes wonderful things happen.
