Wish You Were Here

The Iron Craft Challenge #14 was a post card challenge. We could do anything we wanted, as long as it was a post card size.
I ended up making two. They are both mixed media.
For the 'dots' card, I used fabric and stitched the materials to the card.

it also has part of the woven navel Oranges bag sewn to it.

The other card is a nod to my Naugahyde obsession.

The paper with gold is from a dollar store in China Town. It has some significance during one of the holidays, but I'm not sure what it is. (I could not understand the owner explaining it - truth be told. But he was so enthusiastic about it, I just appreciated the explanation) They sell them in HUGE stacks. And they are each a little bit different, with the lovely water color orange stripe, and the box of gold.

There are not enough Naugahyde projects out there. I intend to try to remedy this deficiency in my life time.
Happy Mail Bag to each of you!
