Crafty Boots - Postcards

Welcome to another fabulous challenge set by the Crafty Boots DT - I just about tore myself away from the Olympics to make this!  My lovely team-mate Gabrielle chose this theme - and I turned to my Stampscapes.


If I could find my instructions on how to position two pictures side by side I would have....

I used the squeezed lemonade, tumbled glass and salty ocean distress inks to colour the post card and archival ink for the stamping.

Do stop over to the challenge site to see what the others have dreamt up this time. Hope to see your fabulous entries too.

Helen, I wish I was there too! Love the seascape - what a clever idea and the colours are just perfect... that sea is very inviting! Thank you for taking the challenge and making something so brilliant x

I love my stampscapes and in particular the seaside ones. This is a goodie especially as you squeezed it into the Olympic onslaught. I am so enjoying it. I must say that Team GB is doing reazzzzzonably well! Hehe. These humans are so superb, I am truly gob-smacked.
See you on WOYWW.
smiles,
Ros.
