Wish you were here....

Hazel, my fellow Craft Room DT member has set us a fabulous challenge this fortnight.  Hazel has asked us to create a postcard (6" x 4") and we have a great sponsor in Crafty Individuals.

To be honest I struggled with this theme ...trying to work with the stamps I own, so it is quite simple!



I coloured my postcard with Faded Jeans distress inks and then embossed all my images including text and flourishes around the edge with black embossing powder.


I then proceeded to colour all my images and text with a combination of Faded Jeans and Aged Mahogny distress inks.  



I hope you can play along this fortnight as I am looking forward to seeing all the different places on your postcards. My DT friends have as usual created an eclectic array of inspiration.  Suzanne x
