Postcards

As many of you know, when I'm not cooking and crafting I love to enter competitions, and sometimes for postal ones I like to use a hand made postcard. This week I've made a few to top up my stocks with.

All are based on a standard sized postcard, ie an A6 piece of cream card. The Postcard stamp is a very old Stampendous one, the feather is by PSX, the leaf and butterfly from an Indigo Blu set that was a magazine freebie and the dandelion clocks are ones I ordered by mail from an American company - I *think* it was called Just For Fun.

I  used distress ink in Antique Linen and Tea Dye around the edges of the cards before stamping, to give the cards a slightly aged effect.





I am sharing these (well the first and third of them!) with

Butterfly challenge - I for Inking
Sweet Stampin' - Things with wings
