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!

  2. Vip Indian Escorts in Doha continually thought to be best escorts on the planet and that is the reason wherever all through the world people simply visit to Doha for escort incitement. Doha escorts There are various sorts of escorts in Doha like understudy escorts in Doha, display escorts in Doha, VIP escorts in Doha, Pakistani Escorts in Doha, Indian escorts in Doha et cetera. If you are in Doha thusly, now you dont need to take any worry over escorts.
