HOME .........

This months postcard swap over on UK Stampers Forum has a theme of Architecture/Stone.  We are to make a 6 x 4in postcard which will travel through the post 'naked' to it's recipient.

I cut the base from white 300gsm cardstock and used some background paper to provide a little colour.

I then stamped a door, windows and brickwork in Archival black using a set of Stampington acrylic stamps.  All stamps came from the set.

Once stamped I coloured in some areas with Posca pens in turquoise, gold and white before edging the postcard with broken china Distress ink.

Finally I sprayed with a thin coat of matt acrylic lacquer to seal.  I liked the simplicity of the card.  What do you think?

  3. I like the less is best idea. Some of the cards we see are mailable only in a box. To much is too much, ;)
