Sixes & Sevens




First post of this New Year !!  This is a 6 x 4 inch postccard made as part of a challenge on UK Stampers Forum.  The subject this month is 'Numbers'.  The postcards have to be able to be posted naked to your swapee too so no big and bulky embellishments. I started with a large card bingo board trimmed to size.






I used stamped images from Lynne Perrella and Paper Artsy, scrapbook paper fragments and punched elements along with self adhesive numbers collaged with paper Mod Podge.





All the elements were edged in chalk inks and some penwork was added with  gold, white and black Posca pens.





Finally the whole postcard was painted with more paper Mod Podge to seal.
