Bon Voyage Postcard
It's so nice to be back to playing in my craft room. Today I created another postcard for Summer of Creative Chemistry Week 2.
I created a random background all with Distress Stains using: Peeled Paint, Weathered Wood, Broken China, and Wild Honey (and Picket Fence). I guess I liked the look of the Wild Honey stain as a sort of sunset, because I pulled out my Tim Holtz Artful Voyage stamp set and went to town using the Stamping with Stains technique.
I ghosted the ship before stamping with Archival Jet Black and followed up with Distress Black Soot ink so I could smudge with with the Picket Fence; I love the end result of the mottled ship. I used Pumice Stone ink to smudge the edges and set it aside to dry before I over-did it.
I'm loving the watercolor postcards - so easy to use and less stress to work on because it's a one layer card, essentially. I'm using the Fabriano Watercolor Postcards today. Since there's a bit more texture, any stamping will look a bit more sketchy, which I liked for this card. I think these will be so fun to mail out later.
Thanks for dropping by -- Craft on!
