In an attempt get rid of feeling blah, I put my mind to finishing up a postcard I started about a year ago. It will soon be jetting off in the mail to my first PIF recipient Grace. I used a button hole stitch around the flowers and embellished with several different fuzzy yarns and backed it with watercolor paper.
I also created an ATC, working this small is a challenge to keep a balanced design and still retain some detail. Something funny happened when I was finishing up this card, I some how managed to get wonder under applied to both sides of the paper backing. Rather than scrap and start over, I decided to use the paper. In order to cover up the mis-fused wonder under I fused a paper towel to it and tore off the excess. The result was a soft handmade paper look to the paper back. Not exactly what I had in mind but a nice result.
