Here is my postcard for this months UK Stampers Forum swap. The background is printed paper treated with Versamark ink and brushed over with Perfect Pearls in blue and pink to give an iridescent effect (not easy to see in the pic).
I then stamped the base of the card with Adirondack watermelon pigment ink and a swirly stamp. I then used some Dylusions stamps by Ranger to stamp the leaves and birdies in Memento black ink.
The birdies were infilled with some Sakura jellyroll gold pens. Some further detail was added with a black Pigma micron pen.
A piece of spotty Washi tape was added above the swirls and three card candi minis were added with Glossy Accents on the left.
The finished design was adhered to a piece of stout card cut to 6 x 4 inches which was then edged with fired brick Distress Ink applied with some cut'n'dry foam. It was sprayed with a matte acrylic varnish to protect in transit through the post naked.
