Strange things, weird people

Hello everyone,

for today's blogpost I have made a postcard.

and here's how:

I used Distress Oxide Inks to create this background. I smooshed them onto my craft mat and then sprayed with water. The paper was then dunked in it. I used watercolour paper. 

After it drieD I used a Tim Holtz stencil and some white paint to add some interest. 

Next I randomly stamped the background with two different stamps. (A list of all the stamps I used is at the bottom of this blogpost). 

Next i stamped my main image; on the card and on a piece of watercolour card stock. I also stamped the sentiment. I used the same paper to avoid colour differences. 

I used watercolour markers to colour in the images, no water. I just blended the colours with each other. 

I added the sentiment, doodled under the strips with a black pen and added a postage stamp. I then used the postcard stamp again but just the part with the circular postmarks. 

I have used the following VLVS! stamps:

Distress Oxide inks, Broken China, Carved Pumpkin and Mustard seed
