Over on UK Stampers Forum we do a monthly Postcard swap which must be sent to its destination through the post as it is. This months challenge is 'Sunshine' , something I am sure we all sorely miss at the moment. So I made this 6 x 4 inch PC.
I used papers from Graphic 45 and the base card was first covered with an orange spotty print.
I then stamped a sunburst with a TH Stampers Anonymous stamp in Versamark ink and heat embossed with a couple of colours of Ranger opaque embossing powders.
Next I stamped a row of grungy stars (also TH) in Memento black at the top. I used some gold Precious Metal colour paint with a loose brush to extend the sunburst to the top and side edges of the card.
The sun was made from a circle of card painted with coral Precious Metal paint, stamped with spots and applied as shown. It was edged with black Micron pen.
Two strips of paper were edged with black soot Distress Ink and applied horizontally at the bottom. Some accents were added with a white Posca Pen and the words Sun & Shine were added with Graphic 45 stickers. The whole card was sprayed with acrylic spray to set it and protect through the post.
