Dedicated to one life as an....(wed stamper eggs)


Wanted to do a surreal fabric postcard as whenever I think of eggs it always reminds me of when I visited the Salvador Dali museum in Spain with its roof full of eggs. This card features various dyed and painted fabric and a rather peculiar scrollswork stamped bird with her eggs. I found this monty python type of hand and thought that would fit in with the man with the egg on his head..sometimes its great to do wacky way out art just for fun!!

Lorraine...that is really pretty and unusual. Makes me want to look at it twice!

It also seems 'vintage' with that hand and egg on the head. Catches your attention! I also like the one life idea...we only have one..so we don't want to waste it..
