Quilt Art Raven Postcard Challenge

"Happy Bird-day, Mr. Poe" -- 4" x 6" 2009
Donated to the ACS fundraiser FFAC collage mania

This party bird card was made for the QuiltArt list challenge commemorating the 200th birthday of Edgar Allan Poe and also as a fundraiser for Fiberart for a Cause (FFAC) collage mania raising money for the fight against cancer. Click here to see all the great postcards and then buy one or two at FFAC collage mania or at Alzheimers Quilt Art Initiative. My card will be available to purchase through the collage mania sale May 5-7, 2009, I hope it finds its way to a good home.

I decided to try a new technique: painting with caran d'ache neocolor II wax pastel watercolor crayons directly onto the fusible fast2fuse postcard material. After the painting/coloring I then used a wet paintbrush to spread the color. Then I outlined with marking pen and machine stitching. Click here to see my journal quilt of my godtwins also painted with caran d'ache crayons.
