Looking around other blogs, I came across this weeks
Sunday Postcard Art with the theme "Animal People"
...... thanks, Kay!
This is such a fun theme and I knew exactly what I wanted to do,
so it didn't take long to make.
I started by masking off the edges of 4" x 6" card
which would finish the postcard with a white border.
I stamped Lady G directly onto the white card, stamped and cut a mask,
and proceeded to sponge a combination of 'crushed olive' and 'broken china'
Distress Ink over the card.
Leaving the mask in place, a quick spritz of water produces lots of background interest.
To finish, I stamped the words in 'jet black' Archival Ink, drew a pen line down the middle,
added a postmark and used just a smidge of a background stamp for a little grundge.
Finally, I carefully peeled back the washi tape that was used to create a border.
