 PostCardMail Art was organising a postcard swap incorporating labels: and this is my story of how I proceeded!

Using a commercial card I scanned and printed the  contents to some cotton twill PFD fabric.
Unfortunately the colours didn't print as vivdly as I wished, but it still suited my purpose as a background for labels removed from ne of my favourite "drops". Stamp declaring PartyTime and  typical drinkers' messages of good cheer were also incorporated.
 In the card below Buddha, some "Paper fabric" from an earlier project was employed along with appliqued fabric cup plus sachet covers of Twinings "Lady Grey"
.The other two cards feature some tea-pots and cups that have been lurking in my sash for a "few" years-.-I took the liberty of using the teabag tabs to swing from a cup and also a pot.
 For both these cards (featuring labels from  plants purchased recently) I used some of the Gelli Plate prints I made a few months back. I hadn't used any of the samples until now because I felt the colours obtained were "too in your face". Laundering did NOT fade the fabric one iota, but hey!  The flower (tags) used are pretty vivid so I married them together and I think they work together well.
