I've finished my color palette project for the month!
I took this palette
and pulled these fabrics. After staring at the fabrics for a while I decided that the multi-colored cloth reminded me of fish. That melded with the idea that I needed more fabric postcards.
Here's the result. I think they are quite cute.
First I fused the sea fabric to my postcard base and stitched some free motion waves with dark blue metallic thread. Then I fused Mistyfuse to the backs of all of the fabrics, cut the shapes and fused them in place. A little top-stitching with another metallic thread and a serged edge and they were done! I played around with the outline color and I think I like this pink the best. They will be cute birthday and guest cards.
