Hello again fellow stampers!!!
It's me Tera here with another fun mail art tutorial. This time I'm sharing a tutorial for a really fun postcard!
I love the look of vintage postcards so to create the vintage look and feel I decided to go with monochromatic colors and vintage looking stamps
I started by using a piece of card-stock that I cut to 4x6 inches...
Next I laid out all of the stamps I wanted to use:
I used VersaFine ink in Sepia
I started by stamping the man with pipe, I then covered it with a mask. Next I stamped the train slightly overlapping the man with pipe so that it would appear to be coming from behind him. I also added a mask over the train. the business man was stamped next, but I decided not to mask him so that the ledger stamp would show over top of him for more depth. after stamping the ledger in various places and direction I decided to stamp the coffee ring stamp randomly. Lastly to finish the piece off I stamped Paris address and sponged on ink around the train and man with pipe. Before removing the masks I lightly sponged ink over the white spaces, then drug the ink pad around the edges to finish the complete vintage grunge look.
Here is what it looks like with the masks in place ^^^
Then here's with out them
I hope this has inspired you to create something fun today!!
