A Post Card for TioT




Hello and thanks for calling in today, I've got another card to share and to remind you that you still have another week left to join in the Post Card( Mail Art) challenge at Try it on Tuesday.

I've had this image for  a couple of years - one of those just had to have stamps, but it hasn't bee inked up very often, so this was a good opportunity, I've stamped it twice, but only coloured the top rose with Aged Mahogany  Distress ink, both layers were dipped in Vintage Photo Oxide ink.  The DP was sent to me by my lovely friend Chrissie and was just perfect for this card.  The sentiment came free with a magazine.

Well I've got my fingers crossed for a better week, we had no internet last weekend and then I've had major computer problems, but with a little help from DD, which at first didn't seem to solve anything, it's now behaving,  so with some luck we'll get back to normal.

Have a great day whatever you're doing,
Avril xx

You've completely mastered that vintage look on this Avril! Great stamping and beautiful colouring of that rose. Hope your internet connection keeps up for you - you don't realise how much you depend on it until you don't have it do you! Hope you are keeping well, lots of love xxxxxx

I love everything about this card Avril. The stamp, the lovely layers and the vintage background, all of these elements work together in perfect harmony. I like how you've coloured the rose too as the colour really stands out and it looks just perfect with the red ribbon. This is one of my favourites and I can absolutely see why you had to have the stamp, it's beautiful. Crafty hugs, Sandra x
