Wheels

My friend Kay is hosting this weeks 
and she has chosen 'Wheels' as her theme.


I thought I'd go olde world with this one, so have chosen sepia tones only.

I knew which stamp I wanted to use, then found a perfect background paper on which to stamp it.  I used 'Soft Suede' ink from Stampin' Up! as it was just the right colour. 

One of these days I should buy myself a postmark stamp, however, the 'To' ,  'From'  and  'Sydney' stamps worked nicely instead.

Although there isn't a lot of stamping, I'm fairly happy with the finished postcard.

  5. Helen, I love this postcard! I have only done one set of postcards that my main design was on the address side of the card and I used the back for writing my note. It was my Easter postcards and I loved how they turned out. And since then I have forgotten that style is a possibility for any postcard. You are reminding of that here. I love the simplicity of your postcard. That paper is a perfect background for that great image. Well done!
