I thought I'd play a little more with last week's doodle (see my last post) and this time add colour.
I began by tracing the basic outline directly onto fabric using a Pigma Micron Pen.
With a handful of regular .......run of the mill........ nothing special......colour pencils I filled in the flower and leaves.
Then, a thin layer of textile medium was brushed onto the coloured areas and allowed to dry before it was heat set with my iron.
Here, you see it finished up as another postcard.
With this one I did basically the same thing, I drew directly onto off white fabric, coloured with all purpose inks, then cut the image out and placed it onto a beautiful purple background. This is for a friend who has just become a member of the Red Hat Society
The beauty of making postcards is that you can try different things to see what can be achieved without a large investment of time or supplies, plus you have a little something to share with others.
