School Days .......

Over on UK Stampers Forum we have a monthly postcard swap, the September theme is 'School Days'.

I cut a piece of scrap white card into a 6 x 4 inch postcard blank and then used a number of 12 inch papers cut down to embellish the base.  I edged the components with barn door Distress Ink on cut'n'dry foam.

The boys image was stamped on more scrap card, coloured with alcohol ink markers and trimmed out.  I used a glue stick to adhere all of these.  I used a few stamps and black Memento ink to stamp the words (Papertrey Ink) and the border along with a bit of Micron pen doodling.

Finally I gave the whole thing a quick spray with matt acrylic sealer to protect it through the post naked !

Why don't you visit the Forum, become a member and join in?  It costs nothing and you will receive a stamped handcrafted postcard in return for your efforts !
