Paris Post card



The challenge this time at Try It On Tuesday is Post Cards.  For my postcard I used a 4"x 6" piece of glossy card and covered it with distress oxide inks in Wilted Violet and Cracked Pistachio, heat dried it and then dipped it into various colours of oxides spritzed on my blending mat,drying in between each lot of colours, get a bit carried away and can go on for ever adding more layers of colour .  I stamped the Woodware Paris Collage in Wilted violet onto it,not the most successful stamping, so stamped it again on tissue and adhered the tissue to the lower half which had not stamped well.  Stamped the collage again on a piece of Brusho paper and fussy cut the butterfly,watch etc. Added a die cut Eiffel tower and a stamped postage stamp.  Lots of messing about but enjoyed making it and reasonably happy with the result.  Hope you will join us in our challenge.
