Postcards for iHanna's Swap
These are the postcards I made for iHanna's international postcard swap. You can find out about the swap on her site.
All the backgrounds were made with Tim Holtz Adirondak Color Wash sprays. These sprays are actually a water based dye and are fun to work with. On thiscard I just added some bird stickers.
On this one I started with the face stamp, drew the body and added chalk on the cheeks and the shirt.
Here I used one of the collage elements I got from Zorana, her birds are always a great embellishment.
This one has stamping in white and black and was in homage to the Japanese people.
After creating the background. I used a stencil and some colorwash spray. I then outlined the flowers in white. I loved how it just made them pop.
Here I used my mendhi stencil and some golden fluid paint. I use a stencil brush to get the paint into all those tiny spaces.
In this one I used a stencil and used some colorwash spray. I then painted over the flowers with twinkling H2o's and then outlined the flowers in white. You can't see it very well in the photo but the flowers have a shimmery look to them.
I just added a picture of the Mona Lisa, that was an actual post card itself and then added some charcoal and oil pastel, and words. It was fun making these cards.
So what did you do over the weekend?
