I thought I'd make postcards for my projects this month. I love postcards because they are really satisfying to make, and equally satisfying to receive - I hope!!! I decided to use kraft card as the basis of my postcard and layered white and then four shades of blue paint on top. Then I layered white and blue paint through a stencil and then I sanded it to reveal some of the kraft card beneath.
I added two more stencils (all stencils are by Wendy Vecchi) again using the same paints and then drew round the stars to make them stand out a little more. Then I added stamped lines (an Ellen Vargo stamp for PaperArtsy).
I lightly covered a little book text with white paint and then, when dry, stamped the geese. I also stamped the geese straight onto the postcard. I cut out the geese bodies and coloured the beaks with Spiced Marmalade Distress Marker and added a little Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the bodies and then adhered them to to postcard.
I hope you'll join in with us this month!
