Autumnal Colours Fabric Postcard

  Made this today for a swap.

                        Autumnal Colour Postcard          

The background was made using silk tops and  non-fusible Angelina Fibres covered with  organza and felted using the embellisher machine. The photograph is one of my own which I played about with in Photoshop Elements , and then adding the quote. I printed it out onto some plain white fabric (poly cotton maybe). The flower was made from various pieces of fabric die cut using a Tim Holtz Die and then stamped with Olive Green and Pumpkin Stazon Inks. This was attached securely and then a wooden button was stitched into place. A couple of beads were then added and the button coloured with Treasure Gold (Spanish Topaz). I used Pelmet Vilene for the backing and machine stitched around using a zig-zag stitch.
