Postcards (Sewn) On The Edge

These postcards are 4″W x  6″H.  The backgrounds  watercolor paper which I used as paint waste paper – a blend of several acrylic paints.  Each card is backed with a piece of watercolor paper with old used postage stamps glued all over.  After adhering the two sides together, I sewed around the edges with my machine.  The newsprint is actual 1858 newspaper ads – I ordered the ephemera  from The Prints and the Paper on Etsy.  The female images are from Go Make something, a great site for FREE images. Thank you Lisa! The black swirls are napkin fragments added to the final collage.

  3. Very nice, Corinne. A nice fusion of all the parts with the background, images, stamping and text. I’ve always liked vintage, just don’t do enough of it.
