A Postcard

I like postcards, have I told you that before?  6" x 4"a neat size to work with they can be used for any purpose.

Needed to make something but was not at all sure what.   Had a rummage as you do when looking for inspiration.   Found a new stencil from Stamplorations and used it as the base.   Brushed over the stencil using 4 different but related colours of DI.   Makes me realise how into cool colours I am yellow/orange is probably the warmest I'm comfortable with.

The bee stamp is from Magenta quite old now but still a great favourite the wings are filled with Sakura glitter pen, the body a pale felt pen.   The sentiment is another old stamp from Hero Arts.
