Cheeky...........

  


This is my entry for the UK Stampers Postcard swap this month.  The red cheeks give away the choice of title for this card. The theme for August is open so I have done a very colourful card keeping in mind that it has to travel to it's recipient through the post with no other protection.




I cut a piece of plain white card to 6 x 4 inches and set about with a stencil and Distress inks in barn door, wild honey and dusty concord, overlaying the colours each time until the desired colour depth was obtained.  I used a Lynne Perrella stamp of a feather and stamped this around the edge of the card in moonlight white Brilliance ink ...... it's subtle but I think looks good.  The edges of the card were then heat embossed in detail gold embossing powder.






The main image is another sizeable Lynne Parrella image from PaperArtsy which I stamped on more white card in Versamark ink.  I then heat embossed the image with detail gold embossing powder for the outline.





I then coloured the image with Marvey Alcohol Ink brush markers and trimmed out the image.  I used Mod Podge matt for paper as the adhesive to firmly attach the image on the Postcard.

This swap is very popular so why not join in by clicking the link at the beginning of the post?

Hello Sid!
What a lovey little work of art! The embossing is a nice touch, giving it that extra element of texture, great idea. Your work is very inspiring.
Hugs,
Lisa
