It's a Hen Nite

Heard from a friend today, she has spent 2 months travelling round Europe in a camper van.   They had a great time but the weather there was not as good as we have been enjoy apparently.   Nice to know that sometimes this is the best place to be.

Which has nothing to do with this postcard.

Two Saturday challenges inspired this.   Allsorts  weekly challenge with the theme of Ladies Night Out.   the other challenge is Less is More week one of their two week challenge theme Friendship.

As soon as I saw these two challenges I knew what to do.   The Penny Black chicks series is a firm favourite.  There are 3 stamps in the set and recently the third joined my collection but has yet to be inked.  

Post card cut to size and the image stamped with Archival Ink.   Masking tape place above the image so that yellow DI could be dusted over the image with it going every where.   A simple black line is drawn under the image.   My trusty old Whisper Pens coloured the girls in, well it's a post card and you do not really want bleed through from alcohol pens do you.

I can imagine someone sending a card like this to her girlfriends inviting them to her Hen Nite.
