Hello all and thanks for dropping in here. Today I have a postcard to share, made with the help of a so called master board.Sunday Postcard Art challenge. The theme this week is lavender. I do enjoy making postcards, and please note this is not a double greeting card, it's just a single layer, 4 by 6" in size.
Below a quick look at how I put it together.
Once everything had totally dried I cut it into various pieces. The piece on the right became the postcard, the bit on the left was turned into a little book and the two smaller pieces will become journal cards.
Below the postcard again with some description of what I did:
I coloured the background with a mix of Distress Oxide Sprays, Distress Spray stains and some Distress Crayons.
I added some collage elements along the bottom and finished with a lavender sticker I happened to have in my stash.
A postage stamp and little butterfly were the final touches. Below is a picture of the cover of the little book I made with most of the rest of the master board. What you see is just the cover, but I sewed some coffee stained pages inside to make it into a little book.
Master boards are a great way to use up scraps and create a base layer for other projects.
Well, that's it for today. If you like making postcards, why not take a look at the Sunday Postcard Art blog
