School Postcard


I haven't joined in with the Sunday Postcard Art challenge for a very long time, but this week I decided to change that.  Their theme is childhood, so I chose a school theme.  The background was created using a brayer, a credit card and Stewart Gill paints.  I stamped some random images into the background.  The letters were stamped onto tissue paper with black stazon.  I gave the background a coat of matte medium and carefully laid the tissue on top, but still managed to ruckle it a bit as I was brushing over it.  I did the same with the image of the school girl.  Once dry I went back in with the SG paints over the tissue paper.
