The Theme is "Dance"


May is almost over, but here is my fabric postcard for The Postcard Challenge
It's a good change for me to work with fabric instead of paper from time-to-time and this challenge gives me that impetus. I stamped the dress with Staz-On Ink and an Inkadinkado stamp, then shaded it a bit with a Twinkling H2O. I embroidered the outline with embroidery floss and then embellished the straps with some beads from my stash. I made a flower from some sheer fabric I had lying around. Heck, ANY fabric I use has been laying around, I can't trust myself to go into a fabric store.
Then, I sprayed the whole kit and kaboodle with gold Maya Mist to give it a bit of a vintage feel (which I'm not sure worked) and then did the blanket stitch around the edges.
And THIS, on the 21st of the month, is my May fabric postcard.

  2. What the heck does impetus mean? Never mind, I'll google it. This is superb, by the way. I have the same question as Linda, you embroider? Are you sure you're not in the CIA or something you're not telling us? You seem to have these hidden talents that we don't know about...lol. And yes, I think the mist makes it look vintage.

  3. This is so very cool. I have never made a fabric postcard. Can you really mail them?

  4. I don't honestly know if you can mail them. I did mail my last one, but put it in an envelope, To tell you the truth, I barely trust Canada Post with envelopes, let alone anything else. I have some history (not good) with them and know whereof I speak. If I had a pony, I would rather send stuff that way.
