Sunday Postcard "Bathing Beauties


The theme at Sunday Postcard is "Bathing Beauties". I made a piece with lots of texture, the idea being the feel of a sandy/rocky beach. The texture was created with PVA glue and tissue, embosing powder and texture paste. It was coloured with |Steward Gill Alchemy and Byzanthium paints and a bit of additional drawing with water colour crayons. The lovely bit of lace I received as an "extra" with a recent swap.

A lovely bit of lace it is! The textured background is wonderful and I love the way you have reflected the bead colour in the lace to your background. Great postcard.

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!
