Yellow bird (Leahs fabric postcard challenge and mixed media monday challenge)


I have joined a monthly fabric postcard challenge hosted by Leah over in Texas. This months challenge is yellow & bird. I have never made a fabric postcard before so was glad to use up my recently painted fabrics on this card. I have added some freestyle machine embroidery over the top and sewed some veins in the leaves..another new thing to me! The challenge over at Mixed Media Monday is something new and as this is new to me I think it qualifies!!


It has just about stopped snowing today so my sons are back at school which means I had time to make this today. Have just treated myself to a new phone so hopefully it will take better photographs than the last one!! Have a good day and keep warm.
