I finally found time to put the embroidered leaves on the printed silk paper sample. I just laied down a few silk tops to keep everything in place and left it at that, I think it's worked quite well. I bought some Perspex to make a sandwiched frame to display it, so I hope that goes well, with a little DIY help from 'him indoors'!
Having finished off that project I decided to take the plunge and make my first post card. It was actually the product of a rather unsuccessful attempt at using Transfoil. I had some knocking about from a show, as you do, and had lost the instructions. I tried sticking it to Bondaweb, shiny side up, and found I couldn't remove the film, so most of it had to stay put. I seem to remember similar problems when I tried to use it once before. I'll have to investigate further and maybe take some advise from PurpleMissus.
Anyway, it was a fairly succesful day and I was pleased to have made a post card at last especially when I found that my little quilting square was the perfect size, and I could see through it, hopefully many more on the way.
