sincerity

on wednesday night live recently, i showed how to make this fabric postcard using tap and fast2fuse.

i love this book, the spirit of the chinese character. it shows you how to draw 50+ characters for great words like sincerity, harmony, sage, and destiny. i like painting them directly on to fabric, but for this card i scanned in the character, reversed it, then printed it on tap to transfer it on to fabric instead...much easier!

i did the same for the word in english...type, reverse, print and transfer.

the web texture behind the character is black mistyfuse trapped under the tap, on top of green fabric - i love this effect.

after fusing everything down, i stitched around the edges, fused cardstock to the back, and it's ready to send!
