Colour theme postcard
The lovely Sam set us a colour theme for the postcard swap on UK Stampers . The postcard swap is a monthly affair and is good fun, I sometimes wonder what the postmen and women think when they have these hand made postcards to deliver – do they have a smile at some of the images? I’d like to think they cheer the posties as they go about their deliveries 🙂
I found the image on the internet and set it on an inked background. The ink colour shows as blue but is in fact a purple colour and this as been overstamped with a crackle background stamp, the sentiment is computer generated and is a line from the poem The Warning by Jenny Joseph. The whole poem can be read here . I like the feeling behind the poem of not sliding into old age but of going with a fight!
The Red Hat Society came into being based on this poem and more can be read about how it all started here
Materials used for the postcard:
white cardstock 300gsm
image from internet
computer generated sentence
Inks – Whispers Rio Purple, Distress ink Spiced Marmalade
Stamp Creative Expressions Crackle background.
Thank you for looking 🙂
