My postcards are finished yay ! and my first ATC cards

Hello everybody, glad you stopped by, i have a few things to share today, i finished my two postcards from my class i took with Donna Funnel, i created the backgrounds in class and finished the designs at home. They were fun to make and i do intend to make some more. The landscape one has both machine and hand embroidery, i added french knots as the blossom and i embroidered the fence.
The flower one is some fabric flowers cut from a floral piece and i laid organza on top of these added beads to the centres and then i embroidered some of the highlights of the petals with black floss.

My next little project was to make some ATC cards, i made one which has been posted to England for a swap with my friend Jennie and then i made three more hopefully to swap with whoever would like to ! The backgrounds on these are made from tissuetex which i crinkled and painted and adhered to timtex, The glitter is made from assorted fibres and threads caught between tulle and organza using a water soluble stabiliser and machine stitched before dissolving, i also have added some fine copper woven ribbon. Well thats about it i am working on another project which i hope i can share with you soon !
