My postcard this month is for Lynda.
I painted nappy liner with watercolour paint and ironed it on to a piece of cotton fabric. It needed something else so I painted scrim with fabric paint. I don't know what sort of scrim this is I got it from Fred Aldous but it's stiff and if you wet it you can stick it down so that's what I did to adhere it to the nappy liner. I printed the saying on to T-shirt transfer paper and added a few of the hearts. I added some zig zag stitching around it to make it look as if it was a separate piece that I'd added. I'd also printed the flower on the same paper but once I'd ironed it on to the background I felt the postcard was a bit flat so I've machine embroidered over it.
