Framed Postcard

This is a postcard that have made for the UK Stampers monthly swap for August.  The theme is to use a frame on your postcard. I started with a piece of white card 6 x 4 inches which I coloured with Distress Inks applied direct to the card. I used faded jeans and victorian velvet which I dried with a heat gun.  The base was stamped around the edges with a swirl stamp and Memento black ink.

I then stamped a face stamp from Crafty Individuals in Versamark ink and heat embossed this with a Moonglow embossing powder which is metallic (doesn't show very well on the photo).  I used Distress Stickles in victorian velvet to infill the un-embossed facial details and edged this with a silver Posca Marker.

The frame was cut from mountboard using a movers and shapers Die from Sizzix and this was painted with metallic acrylic paint in turquoise.  This was stuck over the embossed face image firmly with Glossy accents.  I applied some black Stazon on the same swirl stamp to embellish the corners of the frame.

Finishing touches were to add the printed words and edge with white Posca marker.  The whole thing was then sprayed with acrylic sealer as it will end up in the post naked !
