Fabric 'n fiber Postcards: Day 21

 

Still following in Angelina mode,is this sunprinted fabric embellished with Angelina fibres and silver quilting.
The fabric was one of several sunprinted fabrics I did a while back using pebeo Setacolour Soleil transparent paints on a natural coloured Homespun.
Fronds of fern from the garden were used for the negative effect,and because the day was windy,the leaves were anchored with tulle ,which,in parts left a faint echo pattern.

One of my favourite(read very easy to use) metallic silver threads was used for the quilting,and to further secure the Angelina, before the card travelled overseas.

I also used the silver to stitch one quarter inch inside the raw edges,which I then neatened with a wavy-edged rotary cutter Posted by Picasa
