Using An Old Postcard

Weds Stamper this week have set the challenge to create artwork on the back of an old postcard. As I could not put my hands on one at home, I printed an image off the internet onto glossy paper to use. I then used my Tim Holtz masks with distress inks to add a pattern to the background, stamped a postage mark and flowers from Prima over the top, then punched some leaves and coloured them with chalk eyes and finally added a touch of Tattered Angels mists over the top. It was a little difficult to photograph as it was getting dark, so I will try and get a clearer shot tomorrow.

Sally, It's beautiful, even if you did feel the picture didn't show everything you wanted. I love the way you used the TH mask. I've never tried that so there's another technique I can try for the first time. Your colors are gorgeous.
