Marti is off to Houston(or at least her photo is!!) . My friend Brenda let me use a photo she took of her dog Marti. I modified the original photo in PSE and printed it twice, once on an inkjet cotton sheet and once on organza- these two layers together give an interesting 3-D look. After the layers were stitched together, I added some batting behind Marti’s face and created a trapunto dog. I made Marti’s face pop even more with some free motion quilting and then added on a postcard backing. Some zigzagging around the edge tied everything together.

So here is Marti on a postcard:
Doesn’t she have the most interesting eyes???
Last year I sent in a postcard with Stewie on it so I am not sure what I will do next year. Maybe Brenda’s other dog Cairo???
