Alphabetica M, N, O postcards

M is for multicoloured.  I punched little flowers from lots of odd bits of handmade backgrounds.  In my mind's eye this was much prettier LOL.  Think I should probably have started with a circle and worked out.

M for mosaic - stamped on a handmade background, using a bit of fun foam stuck on the end of a chopstick!

N for nautical - a Queen Anne's Dresser sailor stamp, with some seashells and texture.

N for nature - this one came out better than I'd hoped - a Distress Ink background, stencilled with modelling paste.  Stencil by Crafters Workshop, coloured with Brilliance inks, Adirondack inks, and a little Treasure Gold here and there.

O for organza.  Pelmet vilene base, sprayed with colourwashes, then layered with organza scraps and hand stitched.  A little label - moulding paste spread onto cardstock, scratched into, and painted with fluid acrylics once dry - and a few sequins & beads.

O for organza - layered organza, scored with a soldering iron, beaded and hand stitched, a la Margaret Beal.
