Be my Valentine?

Some weeks back I experimented with calico,various tissue wrapping papers,diluted glue,Angelina fibres and Lumiere paints,to produce some rather bright paper/cloth?

Remembering that I'd committed to a Valentine Postcard swap,I thought I'd "play":
These photos are the result resulting collages./postcards.

The first pic features some fine pink bridal lace and a lace motif behind black bridal tulle.

The second and the third cards feature two fabric prints made and given me by my friend SandieW.

One is framed with some cream braid from my stash and gold butterfly stamping;

The next,a sepia toned print is framed with lace from my CQ stash and ruffled ribbon floss.
A fine blue organza bow anchors the lace and floss.

Finally,another lace motif heart with more Angelina imprisoned by black bridal tulle.
All cards are edged with a multi-coloured blanket stitch.

I hope the recipients enjoy my attempts.
