Foil and silk postcards


My cards are ready... The light blue fabric is hand dyed and sponged habotai silk. The leaves are copper foil. I had some problems with the foil this time, because it stuck so well to the silk that it even adhered where it should not!... I had to scrape off the metal foil with a knife... Not the best treatment for such a delicate fabric!

Such a restful blue, complemented by the metal foil. Well done. are you selling these?

Thanks for the comments!
No, I don't sell my postcards. They are already on their way to the States. I even didn't keep one for me...
