This is a postcard that have made for the UK Stampers monthly swap for August. The theme is to use a frame on your postcard. I started with a piece of white card 6 x 4 inches which I coloured with Distress Inks applied direct to the card. I used faded jeans and victorian velvet which I dried with a heat gun. The base was stamped around the edges with a swirl stamp and Memento black ink.
I then stamped a face stamp from Crafty Individuals in Versamark ink and heat embossed this with a Moonglow embossing powder which is metallic (doesn't show very well on the photo). I used Distress Stickles in victorian velvet to infill the un-embossed facial details and edged this with a silver Posca Marker.
The frame was cut from mountboard using a movers and shapers Die from Sizzix and this was painted with metallic acrylic paint in turquoise. This was stuck over the embossed face image firmly with Glossy accents. I applied some black Stazon on the same swirl stamp to embellish the corners of the frame.
