great big stitched postcard swap

i am participating in this spring's Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap. my partner lives in Nova Scotia and very soon will have her postcard in hand, but, i wanted to share what i made for her with you all first.

i used a white paper bag as my substrate to paint on. i painted first and then, went back and measured and cut a standard postcard size of 4" x 6". i cut a heavy cardstock paper to fill the middle and provide some structure and support to my card; and then, stitched that all together with some yellow thread.

this is the back side where the addresses will go. a little paint and some doodles and will call this good. time to send this off.....cannot wait to see what i get back! i will share when my postcard arrives.


thanks for your comments- i love hearing from you!!
