Playing with postcards

I decided that the snow portion of my postcard needed texture so I randomly stitched it with white perle cotton. All photos should enlarge if you click them.

And I loved how it turned out.

I decided to try a couple really simple ones using iron on crystals but I’m not too impressed with my stitches on the year – maybe I need to do it smaller. I may need to do another beaded one since I’m not really happy with how these are turning out.

    The snowflake one is my favorite…really like the contrast and the Perle cotton “flakes.” Didn’t think I would ever say I liked snow after all the shoveling I did in Boston last week!

    I really like the 2nd from the top-really reminds me of snow! (Ours all melted as it was in the 50’s today, NY/PA) The multi-colored one reminds me of New Years. Great job!

    I really like the snow embroidery, it punches up that part of the postcard. You do gorgeous work!
