Those Were The Days

Over on UK Stampers Forum we run a monthly postcard challenge where we are asked to make a 6 x 4 inch postcard which has to travel to it's recipient 'naked' through the post.

This months challenge is to have wheels somewhere on your card ......... so here is mine.

I used background paper from My Minds Eye and covered a 6 x 4 inch piece of white card with it.  That provided the wheels !

I then stuck another piece of paper from the same pad (follow your heart  * be amazing) and placed as shown.  The butterfly was a stamp from Darkroom Door stamped in Archival black on a die cut butterfly blank.  This was edged in aged mahogany Distress Ink and again stuck in place.

Other stamping with a swirl and the words was done in sepia Versafine ink using PaperArtsy stamps. 
Finishing touches were to add a piece of printed Washi tape with a little metallic silver added with a Posca marker.  The whole card was then edged with more aged mahogany to complete.
