Postcards

http://www.threecreativestudios.com/ has a Technique of the month challenge. This time it was to use up scraps sitting around the studio. Our quilt group gives little gifts at our December meeting. The two made me think of doing postcards.
All are mounted on Tintex to give them body. I had some samples of ribbon or lace flowers sitting in a box, so they ended up on three.

I have lots of bits and pieces of ribbon-can't throw away pretty stuff.

All are edged with yarn mostly zigzagged to the edge unless it was a flat ribbon as it was on the two red cards.

Machine Embroidered leaves worked too. Now I'm ready for the meeting.

What a great way to use your bits and pieces - I may make the deadline by next Thursday, I certainly have plenty of pieces! Cheers, Robin
