Bon Voyage Postcard

It's so nice to be back to playing in my craft room.  Today I created another postcard for Summer of Creative Chemistry Week 2.

I created a random background all with Distress Stains using:  Peeled Paint, Weathered Wood, Broken China, and Wild Honey (and Picket Fence).  I guess I liked the look of the Wild Honey stain as a sort of sunset, because I pulled out my Tim Holtz Artful Voyage stamp set and went to town using the Stamping with Stains technique.

I ghosted the ship before stamping with Archival Jet Black and followed up with Distress Black Soot ink so I could smudge with with the Picket Fence; I love the end result of the mottled ship. I used Pumice Stone ink to smudge the edges and set it aside to dry before I over-did it.

I'm loving the watercolor postcards - so easy to use and less stress to work on because it's a one layer card, essentially.  I'm using the Fabriano Watercolor Postcards today.  Since there's a bit more texture, any stamping will look a bit more sketchy, which I liked for this card.  I think these will be so fun to mail out later.

Thanks for dropping by -- Craft on!
