Sunday Postcard "Men"


The theme at Sunday Postcard is "Men". My main image is a stamp from Oxford Impressions. The frame was a golden cardboard frame which I first covered in one coat of clear Utee. That gave it the kind of mottled effect that in this case I wanted. I then coloured it with perfect pearls to create a kind of faux metal effect. The background was then stamped with various background stamps and coloured with dstress inks

The frame looks like burnished coper. Hard to believe it is cardboard. This is a wonderful, artistic take on the challenge.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
