Postcard from India

Here is my next postcard in the Postcard from...... series. This one, set by Gail over on UK Stampers forum was for India. I used:

  • Card (Dark turquoise, cut to 6 x 4 inches & Cream)
  • Stamps (Judikins - soul window cube, Paper Artsy - alphas words plate 3)
  • Brayer
  • Versafine Inkpad (Onyx black & Vintage sepia)
  • Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Damask)
  • Inktense pencils
  • Waterbrush
  • Whispers Dye Ink (Brown)
  • Natural sponge
  • Pigment Inkpad (Colorbox gold)
  • Embossing Powder (Detail gold)
  • Decorative ribbon (gold embossed leaf on brown & gold)
  • Krylon Pen (Gold)

The base card was trimmed and embossed with the cuttlebug embossing folder. I use my Sizzix to do the embossing. The gold pigment inkpad was rubbed over the relief and detail gold embossing powder was applied and heat embossed with a heat gun.

The Judikins eye stamp was inked with Versafine onyx black and stamped onto cream card. To get the opposite eye I inked up the stamp and rolled the brayer carefully over it to pick up the ink. The brayer was then rolled onto the cream card to produce the other eye (mirror image). The eyes were coloured with Inktense pencils and this was worked with the water brush. They were trimmed and edged on three sides with the gold Krylon.

The word 'India' was stamped in Versafine Vintage sepia ink onto another piece of cream card and trimmed. The brown Whispers inkpad was opened and a natural sponge tapped onto its surface then onto the word to give a mottled effect. The trimmed word was then edged with gold Krylon.

A piece of ribbon was cut and applied with double sided tape as shown. The whole card was edged with gold Krylon. The eyes and the word were backed with foam pads and appled as shown to finish.

Hope you like it :-)
