Watery Postcard ......

Here is a postcard made for a Swap this month over on the UK Stampers Forum Facebook Group. The theme this month is 'Sea & Sand'.

I cut a piece of watercolour paper to 6 x 4 inches and wet this thoroughly, then sprinkled a selection of blue, green and violet Brushos onto the wet surface.  Further spraying was done to dissolve and distribute the colours until happy, when it was dried with a heat gun.

The decoration and sentiment have been stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with various embossing powders with a few stamped in Archival black Ink.  Some colouring with Posca pen and Sakura gels added to finish.

The whole thing was reinforced by sticking to white card and the whole card edged with dark blue chalk ink to finish.

Numbers Postcard ......

Here is a postcard made for a Swap over on UK Stampers Forum Facebook Group !

I started with a 6 x 4 white card base and used a stencil through which I inked with numerous colours of Versamagic chalk inks.

The black & white border was then added with Posca markers.  I then stamped the numbers (PaperArtsy) in black Versafine ink and added the printed words as shown, highlighting the number one in Red Posca !

I added another layer of card to strengthen the postcard and sprayed with matt acrylic lacquer to protect through the postal system as they are sent 'naked' !
