These three postcards have been in the works for quite sometime and I finally got down to putting on the finishing touches of yarns, beads and ribbon.
The background fabric is made from silk fusion fused over a blue or lavender piece of fabric.
On the first card, the big lavender blob is a ceramic bead of sorts, that my mom made. Doesn't it make a great piece of underwater embellishment? Next time I am home I will have to snag a few more.
My favorite touch is the tiny fish I created. On the second card the fish are done with two square cut beads and on the third they are done with a twisted bugle bead. Click photo for a larger view of the postcards.
I also experimented with various stitches for the border, zig zag, button hole and a straight stitch. I like the zig zag and the buttonhole the best.
