Postcard from Australia !

Here is my entry for this weeks Sunday Challenge over on the UK Stampers forum. This weeks theme was 'Australia'
For the postcard I used:
  • Ink-jet image of Australia
  • Cheap hairspray
  • Moonglow Glitz Spritz (Shimmering Silver)
  • White card
  • Adirondack Dye Ink pad (Eggplant)
  • Brayer
  • Stazon Ink Pad (Royal Purple)
  • Rubber Stamps (Foliage Cube Fern, Invoke Arts Alphas, See D's Alphas)
  • Versamark Ink Pad
  • Embossing powder (Peach, White)
  • Skeleton leaves
  • Satin ribbon (Maroon)
  • Glossy Accents
  • Micro Glue Dots
  • Glue Stick
I must say I didn't have one directly related stamp so I used an ink jet printed image of Australia which I cut out and set with cheap hairspray then sprayed with the Glitz Spritz.
The card was cut to 15 x 10 cm and brayered with Adirondack eggplant then overstamped with the royal purple Stazon and the foliage cube stamp.
The Invoke words were stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white EP. The word OZ was stamped similarly with the See D's Alphas and heat embossed with peach EP.
The ribbon was applied with glue dots as shown and three skeleton leaves tucked under the ribbon and stuck with small amounts of glossy accents as shown. Finally the map of Australia was applied with a glue stick.
Hope you like it :-)
