I haven't made a postcard for a while, so when I saw the theme (and since my granddaughter is out in the swimming pool with the "big" kids), I thought I'd see what I could come up with. Finally had a chance to use my Octopede stamp, lots of smooshed ink, sloppy embossing (couldn't have done it better if I tried) and here's my little mail girl...or something! :o)
Yvonne has created such a beautiful piece of art for this challenge. My background is painted, although the color is not scanning as a real sepia, maybe it's time to invest in a better scanner. But, a little stamping and embossing and using some images from Rebelsher's collage sheets, I created my contribution this week. Still super hot here and with the humidity, phew! Thank goodness for air conditioning...I think its inventor should be put up for sainthood! :o)
Here's my offering for our theme this week. I used a darling Paper Whimsy image and a few little bits, smooshed some red and blue ink onto the burlap and finished it off with a background of music and specialty paper for the stripes. This piece also qualifies for Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog (Cynthia) this week! Mighty glad you stopped by and I hope you like this piece!
I'm not much for making jewelry, I'm not even sure if this pendant qualifies, but I figured I'd try. I used an image from Moonlight Journey's Memories collage sheet...trimmed out the little girl and gave it a go! Thanks for looking, opinions appreciated!
Born and raised a city girl (Chicago). Now I live 23 miles south of D.C. Have loved art all my life. Primarily self taught. Raised 3 sons solo and they are my pride and joy. I have a 7 yr old granddaughter and a 2 year old grandson. They are the apples of my eye, and I hope they will love art as I do.
