Postcards

I have been on a mission the last few days, as everyone had gone back to work by Wednesday, I was in the unusual position of having the house to myself for a few days over the Christmas period, decided against some much needed cleaning and went into the workroom.
I dragged out my box of old samples, some from early C&G days, others from workshops, painted bondaweb fabrics, stitched pieces, and chopped them up to make postcards, I was on quite a high cutting into these pieces that have hung around for so long, some are 10 years old, so it was high time they got used.
Here are the first six,
Top: Velvet and Felt and Velvet.
Middle: Synthetic Velvet with painted bondaweb and Synthetic Velvet placed over cotton velvet
Bottom: Upholstery Velvet with painted bondaweb

Like the idea of using up all those bits we produce for C&G. Were these just random samples or were they part of the design process for a finished piece?

Hi Carol,

I love the colour and texture in these postcards. Great use of C&G samples - I might go and have a look through mine - 4 years worth!

More great cards. I love reusing samples from courses and turning them into postcards and ATCs - gives them a second chance at 'life' :)
