Mail Love & Fantasy Fibers

Click on the picture to see a larger view.

These are some more postcards that I will be sending to the members of a group I belong to called Mail love. I busted out my iron, 2 non-stick craft mats, Angelina Fibers and Fantasy Film and had a ball melting them together. Unfortunately the scans (and photos I tried to take) do not do all the metallic paints, fibers and inks any justice. I did the backgrounds with a Tim Holtz recipe for Glimmer mists along with all kinds of metallic paint, ink and wax paste. Once I ran the fibers through Xyron and attached them to the postcard I ran it through another Xyron with a mat lamination and sticky back combination. (The mat laminate also made photographing and scanning next to impossible.) I wanted to make sure they would make it through the PO machinery and all the handling they will get from being admired.

Oh, Valerie, these are sooooooooooooooooooo pretty! The colors are divine! I am often in need of "wall paper" for some of my poems, as the old images I use are in sore need of a makeover. These will come in handy! Thank you!
