Fun Christmas Cards

I have not been able to do any encaustic work so I played around with some cards I had made earler.They are encaustic on fabric which I have seasonally embellished.

Postcard swap continued

I received this postcard from Zoe.
The background was created by stitching small squares of blue fabric together with gold thread. It has been over laid with a seasonal ribbon and the snow man motif to finish off. Finally it has a couple of very pretty buttons attached.

Postcard Swap

I have just posted this postcard for a seasonal challenge on the textile challenge site. The centre was done using tumble dryer sheets. I layered them up with Angelina stitched together and then slit the liners between the stitching to reveal the Angelina. I did the stitching in different directions. I cut it into strips and then turned one up the otherway. This makes the light catch the Angelina more.

Yesterday I bought a Pfaff Smart 350p embellisher and just had to have a little play. I was just trying out different fabric types. I managed to break a needle and then another but that was because I had not put it in properly. I am quite busy this week so am not getting the chance to play properly. Maybe Saturday I will be able to get creative.
