Postcard from Africa

Another week, another postcard............or so they say !! This weeks challenge on UK stampers was to make a 'Postcard from Africa'. So this is my entry.

I wanted to have a contemporary finish, hot colours and a 'Tribal' feel to this one.......

I used:

  • Printed Background Card (Imaginisce - Rococo Loco - double sided)

  • Mask Embellishment (home-made from polymer clay with mica applied)

  • Rubber Stamp (African lady with plate - Third Coast Stamps)

  • Brilliance Inkpad (Copper)

  • Versamark Inkpad

  • Embossing Powder (Judikins - Cloisonne)

  • Rub-on (DCWV - seasons)

  • Chalk Inkpad (Colorbox - peach)

The card was cut to 6 x 4 inches and a triangular piece cut as an overlay and turned over to reveal the opposite side. The stamp was inked with Versamark and stamped several time along the bottom edge of the main piece of card and this was heat embossed with the cloisonne EP. The same stamp was cleaned and the top portion stamped in Brilliance copper ink along the base of the triangle.

The pre-made clay mask was adhered as shown with glossy accents and the card finished with the rub-on as shown. All edges were edged with peach chalk inkpad.

Hope you like it :-)
