Birch Bark Postcard

ART PROMPT - #13 – Add something from nature.

I did not have to think hard, for what to make, as I have been thinking of doing this since I started making fibre postcards.

Paper Bark Postcard
 I placed the birch bark under a pile of books to help flatten it.

The design was burned in using a soldering iron. I wonder what else could be used??? Wheels are turning!

The stitching was done from the back with Wonderfil Razzle thread in the bobbin.
The straight line of stitching went through the bark and Timtex only.
I used a wide zigzag around the edge so it wouldn't split the bark.

I found the "Postcard" stamp at The Paper Place in Toronto

I'm now on the lookout for just the right pieces of bark.

Fun project.

Size 4” x 6”

See you next time,
