Postcard Swap

On ANUK, Kari organised a birthday postcard swap.
We sent her 6 postcards and we will get 6 different ones back to send to ANUK friends as birthday cards.

I haven't made postcards for a long, long time and never in fabric, so I thought I would have a go.
These are my attempts ;0)

The bottom two are collage on watercolour backgrounds and the others are fabric.
These came from a piece of fabric that I made for another project.
I really liked this textile but there wasn't enough left for another..... whatever really!
But there was enough to make these postcards - yippee!

My favourite is the one in the middle that you can't see because of the flashback. Typical!
But the lady is holding a piece of lace across her face. I put a sheer piece of fabric across the card to match.
A couple of others have little organza flowers on them.

A lovely project that I enjoyed making and will enjoy seeing the others. The best part though will be sending them on to the birthday girls. What a treat. Thanks Kari.

These are just lovely Alis, especially the fabric ones (I'm into fabric pc.s - are the ladies printed on fabric too? Val

These are great Alis, I like both kinds - great colours as usual and aren't the ladies just gorgeous!

These are really great!

If you hadn't mentioned "never making fabric postcards", no one would ever have known! These are all just fantastic. I love the texture mixed with the smooth figurative images. The contrast is subtly perfect!

I agree with others - you have done a fantastic job and it is hard to believe this is the first time you've done fabric PCs. Lovely :)

These are lovely Alis. Especially the top three and I too love that centre one. You have done really well considering it is your first attempt at fabric postcards. Whoever gets sent these will be very pleased.

Wonderful work Alis, I adore them. And like the others, I would never have guessed that you'd never made fabric cards before. Well done!

hugs, Linda.
