Embellished Postcards.






These two cards were made for a trade with my Fibre Art Traders group on Yahoo. The pink one is titled"Queen Rules" and the fish one is one of my favorites.....I love this subject.. Maybe I was a mermaid in another life..:-}





There is something that facinates me about seeing a picture of a single piece of fruit.. These I did with my needle felting machine .....I love the black and white background.








This picture inspired me and here is my interpretation. I was very pleased with how it turned out. I used my embellisher machine to needle punch the base colors of the sky and the earth, then I free motioned with threads the trees and then added more wool rovings on the trees and needle punched those areas with my embellisher.

Hi Maggie, I think I like yours better than the original. I love the fish. I think mI was a mermaid in another life also. But, I don't like the water much! Go figure. I admire your work with your Embellisher. I have a felting machine and rarely use it. I'll stop back, maybe you will inspire me. Great blog.
