Landscape Fabric Postcard



I had to try out my new stamp,a landscape one by Crafty Individuals,what better way than making a postcard with it :-]I stamped a little bird in the corner,couldnt resist lol.
I also used some handmade paper I bought at the "Paper Chase" shop,I dyed it a darker green for the background,it has a lovely heavy texture with fabric and fibre's. the stamp I painted in watercolour then glazed it over with Anita's 3D gloss.The buttons I painted over with Luminere metallic paints,sewed on with some beads.These silky leaves didnt take the dye very well,thanks to Jan for the knotted lace,so pretty I will have to look out for some more of that !

More lovely work Pattie, you really are '' cooking with oil' fabric style now. Had a good time with Viv, despite her setting her tame frog onto me!!
