Fabric Mail Art

Here's something fun, a fabric postcard I sent to Leslie Elledge of Alpha Stamps! The front of the postcard is a large fabric image (British Queens 3) from Alpha Stamps. The colors are so rich & vibrant! I added rubber stamping on top of the fabric image with Fabrico (VersaCraft) inks & heat set them. The back of the postcard is a piece of Lutradur only, sewn to the front with a zig zag stitch and then painted with white acrylic paint. When dry, I added the 'postcard' stamp, addressed the card with a permanent Micron pen, and then affixed a postage stamp made at zazzle.com. This particular postage stamp features one of my fabric ATCs made with another Alpha Stamps fabric sheet image from the Menards sheet. Very fun art to do & to send! The Lutradur fabric (spun polyester) makes this posstcard very soft & lightweight - just thick enough to stand on it's own (so to speak!) and send through the mail.
