Recently I joined in a mail art - postcard swap over at Unruly PaperArts. I sent it off today and thought I'd share my creation with you. The only specification was to use your favorite color so of course I used blue :) I also added some green in there because it's my 2nd favorite color. Beyond color there was no theme we had to use so I decided to go with what I love...Steampunk.
I started off with a blue gelli print - one of my favorites. I then stamped, masked and stamped some more until the entire postcard was covered. I used a Black Sakura Glaze Pen which makes it look embossed! I love that pen ~ you can add faux embossed highlights to just the parts of the image you want highlight...it's great (more on that another day). I also added white highlights using a Sakura Gelly Roll pen ~ another of my favorites! The green is Cactus Green StazOn Midi and then I added a bit more color using Spectrum Noir markers and topped it all off with Stickles Glitter Glue!
I'm tickled with how it turned out and I hope my partner will like it as well. As of about 1.5 hours ago it's winging it's way to the UK... I've never sent a postcard internationally so I don't know how long it will take but hopefully it will arrive safe and sound!
