A lovely surprise when I arrived home to find this package, I somehow in my excitement of making cards for Postcard Girls 2008 forgot that I would actucally be receiving cards as well. Here is the lovely card I received from Sandy backed by the super piece of material she had used as a wrapping.
When Sandy first posted this picture I was taken with the transparent petal what I didn't appreciate was the different textures of all the other petals and the stalk and the leaf feel like suede.
Here is one more take from me on the January picture. It is not really a serious contender but I received some transfer paints for Christmas and wanted to try them out. I must say I was really pleased with the result. I first painted the green and transferred it to some cheap stretchy white velvet, it "took" in the most satifying way, a couple of days later I wondered if I could transfer onto the already coloured material and hurrah! yes I could, so this is the result. It was a beast to sew, I really must educate myself on stabilizers which might have helped.
