Beautiful Postcard




There is a monthly postcard challenge over on UK Stampers Forum.  This months if to use a them of 'Beauty' so this is my entry.

I cut a piece of blue cardstock to 6 x 4 inches and attached a piece of text printed paper from My Minds Eye called Mabel.  Once done I stamped an image in archival black ink using a rubber stamp from the Aspects of Design Butterfly Beauties plate by Tracey Coates.






This was coloured with mica paints in various colours to add a shimmer and subtle colour.  A little swirl was inked in dove grey Stazon around the edge and the text was added as a rub-on.

I roughly edged the card with gold Krylon pen before giving the card a coat of Ranger matte medium to seal and make it resilient to being posted to the recipient.
