Postcard Swap

Hi everyone! Hope you all stayed safe during Storm Doris!
I can share this postcard with you now as the swaps have been done.
The theme was Love letters & old lace.
I embossed a white piece of card using an embossing folder & my trusty Grand Calibur. Inked around the card using Distress Inks, to highlight the embossing and give an aged look.
I found some backing paper with script on it. Cut a piece of this, inked the edges & placed down the centre of my postcard.
Die cut the hearts from black card & went over these with gold Inka Gold.
Die cut the words from some red card.
I thought it was needing something else down the centre so I made some small envelopes from copy paper, inked around these to give that aged look.
Arranged the envelopes, hearts & words onto the postcard.
Added some small hearts onto the envelopes & some pearl hearts onto the postcard.
Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by.

I love making these little pieces of art - can be quite challenging finding small images to use.
Hope you like them.

Challenge 23 Creative Artiste

Hi Everyone! Time for another challenge over at Creative Artiste,

Theme - anything goes.


I had the words from Scrapmatts to use. Because of the words I decided some kind of suitcase would be good.
I found this design for a pen pot in my Silhouette Design store.
Cut the design from Kraft card. 
Went over the sides using a Scrapmatts stencil & some DI,
Coloured the words using my Aztec Metallic paints.
Put the penpot together, stuck on the embellishments & added the tag with some twine.

Hope you have time to pop over to the blog to see the other DT's makes & enter the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by.
