Leather postcard

This is a postcard I made today for a swap. The only requirement was to use some leather. This was a good excuse for cutting up an old handbag. The design was inspired by some folk paintings from India.
Une carte textile que j'ai réalisée aujourd'hui pour un échange. La seule règle à suivre était d'employer du cuir. J'ai donc découpé un vieux sac à main. Le motif est inspiré de peintures traditionnelles indiennes.

Very lovely Francoise. You make working with leather look easy. I like the rose colored background as well.

Love your innovative use of an old handbag. Great postcard. Also, I want to say that I missed your self-portrait in August; just now found it; really nice. Artsy!!!! Pat
