It's time for a new postcard swap on UK Stampers - Effie has given us the theme of "autumn" for September's swap.
I'm really not managing much crafty time at the moment so a postcard was perfect for me to squeeze into a half hour of inkiness.
I think a shaped card can have more immediate impact so as time was limited and I wanted to make an impression quickly, I die cut some ivory mountboard for my base. I stamped the bill of sale twice (easy to mask with the straight edge of a Post-It note to give the impression of layering) and then added the crow in the corn, the harvest baskets and some leaves coloured with Copics. A bit of Vintage Photo inking round the edge and I called it done.
Autumn Leaves (A Little Bit Sketchy line from Sheena Douglass)
Fall Harvest and Can it (CHF, retired)
Ivory mountboard (freebie offcut from a framing shop)
Tim Holtz Distress ink by Ranger (Vintage Photo)
Adirondack dye ink by Ranger (Espresso)
Versafine by Tsukineko (Onyx Black and Vintage Sepia)
Tim Holtz Alterations die (Baroque)
Why not come and join us if you fancy getting a lovely handmade postcard in with your usual bills and junk mail? As usual, it's a low-commitment swap, just make one postcard and you'll get one in return so it all it costs you is a bit of time and the price of a stamp. Your card must include some stamping and be capable of going through the post without an envelope but other than that you can create anything within the theme. See what people are making for the swap here.
Thanks for stopping by!
