Just for Fun - Postcards

Good morning, thank you everyone who joined in with us at Just for fun last week with Scraplings we saw so many different ideas and fabulous projects, Thank you.

Neet is still making us use our rulers with her size specific challenges, this week we are making Post cards, 6 inches by 4 inches and you can if you like make the back look authentic as well.

For mine I used an old music sheet as the background stamping the Tattered Angel's owl directly on to it with Perfect Medium, coloured the owl with coloured chalks.   The rugging mesh cut to fit the post card and then cut out the center used brads to hold it in place.   The flowers and leaf are SU stamps just stamped in black ink onto green paper attached through and over the mesh.    Wanted a muted natural feel with this and think I have succeeded.

Your postcard will represent anything you want, we will enjoying seeing what you do if you link at Just for Fun.
