I used some Sizzix stamps paired with dies to produce this postcard. Each month over on the UK Stampers Forum we have a postcard swap and this is mine for March. The theme this time is Spring Colours. It's free to join the forum and there are a number of swaps going on in which you may want to join in on. It's a relatively small and friendly community but you are all welcome to come onboard.
I used a hessian effect background paper to cover a white card blank measuring 6 x 4 inches. Then set about stamping the images in various Brilliance inks which have an opalescent shimmer. I then die-cut them through the Sizzix and used a Micron black pen to edge them. I stuck them in place on the card base and added stems in green Sakura pen. Final touches were to add the sentiment stamped directly in Memento black ink and then I sprayed the card with some matt acrylic sealer to protect it through the postal system as it goes 'naked', i.e without an envelope to it's recipient.

I love nothing better than to escape into my very untidy craftroom and mess around with stamps, inks , paint, fabric & anything else that's crafty for that matter!
