If he ruled the world...

We've just done another postcard swap on UKStampers. Our theme this time was "spring" and our cards had to include some stamping and be posted as genuine postcards, no envelope or other protection.

I stamped my bird and coloured him with Copics and then gave him a gold heat embossed crown since he has designs on ruling the world, apparently!

The leaves were done by sponging ink over skeleton leaves and then pressing an inked leaf over a few of them as well. The lyrics are handwritten and finished with a few stamped notes.

Stamps:
Bird Notes and Altered Art (arrow and notes) - both Crafty Secrets

Paper: Smooth white

Ink:
Adirondack by Ranger (Espresso and Lettuce)
Versamark by Tsukineko

Other:
Copic markers
Detail gold embossing powder
Zig drawing pen
Skeleton leaves


We're having another swap for May - theme is "beauty" this time around. Why not pop over to the UKStampers forum and join in if you fancy a bit of happy mail in with the bills and junk?

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely weekend!

I love how this turned out--your lettering is lovely how it turned out! I just found your blog and it's great. I'll have to pop in again when I can spend more time perusing! Love all your ideas on SCS. Thx for sharing your incredible talent.
