Carpe Diem by Fran

Hi everyone!

Today I have made a postcard.

 First of all I made a background with Distress inks, and used a Tim Holtz stencil to make sun rays.

I edged the postcard in Barn Door distress ink to add interest, and then went round the edge with a part of the heart stamp.

I stamped my sentiment and main image on the postcard (so I didn't have to cut out the tiny pedals of the bike!)

I stamped the main image on thick paper and coloured with Copic pens, then cut out (without the pedals!)

I used some washy tape to ground him and glued him on.  Then I added some background stamps to add a bit of interest and texture.

And that's it folks! I love this happy guy and I hope you do too.

See you next time :)
