JFF - Week 16 - Postcards


This week over on JFF, Neet is asking for a postcard. I've done mine 6" x 4" as size matters!! I created the background with various colours of distress stains.  I then ran it through the bigshot using the cuttlebug clockworks embossing folder and inked over the raised areas with walnut stain distress ink.  I used a paper distresser around the edges and again used the walnut stain.  I stamped the images in stazon, cut them out and stuck them on.  I added various metal pieces and a row of ribbon with beads along the bottom.  I mounted it on to a piece of corrugated the same size to give more depth.
