This is how I made these post cards. First, I dredged the waste paper basket for paper towels I had used to clean acrylic paints off my Gelli Printing Plate. I flattened them, ironed them, and over-stamped them with rubber stamp inks.
The post cards I spattered with rubber stamp ink. Then I cut the paper towels into shapes, and using a glue stick, I attached the pieces to the ink-spattered post cards. I machine stitched around each shape with variegated thread, and- Voila! I'm hoping MMSA will have a Repurposed Paper Towels Swap sometime.
