Postcard from France


Now my postcard is rather chunky, but still.  Over at Out of a Hat Creations this week their theme is a postcard from France.  As I've used the TH postage stamp die cut I figured it would be okay and thought it rather fitting.  Again I created a shadow box but this one wasn't as deep as the others have been.  The background is a piece of marbling created with distress stains, with a mini Eiffel Tower tag 3'd to it, with a piece of acetate with the French map stamped on it and then finally the top layer is the TH Eiffel Tower die cut which fits perfectly into the relevant texture fade.  The frame and tower are painted with vanilla, haystack and brown shed fresco paints.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
