Post cards from my craft table

Got a few things to do today so thought I'd share a couple of Post cards I've made.

This one was made a couple of weeks ago, indulging my love of green


The Crafty Individuals main image stamped in black.   The swirl pattern stamped next over a mask so that it sits behind the main image.   Felt pens in various shades of green picked out the flora and design on the vase.   Grey felt pen added for a little shading and and filled a little more pattern on the vase.

I thought I'd seen a challenge 'Shades of Green' but checking Challenges for days could not find it again.

The next post card was made yesterday, been mulling about it and then was inspired by a couple of challenges to get on and do it.  I like post cards, all mine are 6" x 4'.


The stamps are from Clarity stamped in Archival Black.    The nearest one and the only one not a solid silhouette has been given a yellow 'blanket'.  Yellow brushed in on the left hand side indicating sun, small shadows added in grey pointing away from the 'sun'.

This was inspired by
Rubber Dance - Black, White and one other
Crazy 4 Challenges - Pop (mine is the pop of yellow)
Less is More - Recipe Use a Silhouette.
