Over on UK Stampers Forum we run a monthly postcard challenge where we are asked to make a 6 x 4 inch postcard which has to travel to it's recipient 'naked' through the post.
This months challenge is to have wheels somewhere on your card ......... so here is mine.
I used background paper from My Minds Eye and covered a 6 x 4 inch piece of white card with it. That provided the wheels !
I then stuck another piece of paper from the same pad (follow your heart * be amazing) and placed as shown. The butterfly was a stamp from Darkroom Door stamped in Archival black on a die cut butterfly blank. This was edged in aged mahogany Distress Ink and again stuck in place.
Other stamping with a swirl and the words was done in sepia Versafine ink using PaperArtsy stamps.
Finishing touches were to add a piece of printed Washi tape with a little metallic silver added with a Posca marker. The whole card was then edged with more aged mahogany to complete.
