Over on UK Stampers Forum we have a very popular and successful monthly swap. We call it a postcard swap and members have to make an arty postcard on a theme capable of being posted without any further protection to it's swap partners address ! The July theme is 'Underwater'. Why not visit and see what has been made so far?
I started my postcard by cutting a 6 x 4 inch piece of stout white card as the base. Onto this I stuck a piece of Gelli Plate background I had made whilst playing with the plate and trimmed this to size. I thought the colours looked very underwaterish (is that a word?).
I then used Stazon solvent inks and Memento dye inks to stamp a number of foliage stamps (Crafty Individuals), a fish stamp and the word stamp were also used (Third Coast).
I have also used Posca pens to colour in parts of the word and the little shoal of fishes. Once complete I edged the card with Versamark ink and heat embossed with dark blue embossing powder.
Finally I sprayed the whole thing with a matt acrylic sealant to protect it when sent through the post. Don't know who will get it yet until the end of the month.
