Leafy Bough .....

Made this mailart postcard for a monthly swap over on UK Stampers Forum  ....

Started with a white 6 x 4 inch piece of card and created a background with Brushos & Distress Oxide ink.  Applied a strip of green Washi Tape as shown.

The die-cut tree panel was stamped in yellow, green & brown Impress dye inks with some additional gold pen and green Posca.  The panel was edged in yellow ink and applied as shown.

The punched butterflies were made from an acrylic painted background and were embellished with Posca pen and applied as shown.  The sentiment was stamped in black Versafine ink and edged with Posca and reads 'Keep a green bough in your heart and perhaps a singing bird will come'  The whole postcard was edged in yellow ink and a fine squiggly line was applied around its perimeter to finish.

This will travel 'naked' through the postal system so I gave it a spray coat of Acrylic matt sealer to protect.
