Flowery Postcard



I made a postcard for a monthly swap over on UK Stampers Forum.  The theme for this month was 'Green and Peach'.

I started with a 6 x 4 inch white card base and covered this with two pieces of printed paper featuring daisies and lily's.  One was fussy cut and overlaid on the other some diamond Stickles glitter glue was added to the daisy centres.




I then set about stamping some swirls (PaperArtsy) in opposing colours of Memento dye ink.  I then made some mica powder paints with Perfect Pearls in green patina and mandarin and painted areas of the flowers as shown.



Some penwork in 0.1 Micron pen was added and the 'flowers' stamp (PaperArtsy) was stamped in black Versafine and finished with Glossy Accents.

The card edges were coloured with more orange Memento ink and a spray with matt acrylic varnish to finish.  The card will travel through the post to it's recipient naked (without any envelope or covers).
