Today I made a second Postquard to send to Switzerland. I took pictures of each layer to show you my process. I get teased a lot by friends for using things like this piece of paper towel, that I used for my 1st layer. It was from cleaning up after painting. I even cleaned some of my stamps off on it. I thought it was too pretty to throw away.The dark green on the left is a strip of fabric. I used BoNash to fuse this all down to my Timtex base.
Next is my silk organza, that I painted with Dynaflow fabric paints, & the little green ginko leaf is from a rubbing I did with a Shiva Stick & my toothbrush holder in my bathroom.
After layering the silk on top of the paper layer I quilted it with Holoshimmer thread in a Copper color.
Last I layered on the Ginko piece, fininhed the edges with a dark green holoshimmer, & stamped the word "DREAM" in copper paint. I tried a little embossing powder on it to make stand out a little, but it wasn't very successful. It didn't stick very well to the silk & copper paint.
