Another Postcard!

Hi, a very short post tonight!  I've promised my daughter that we'll sit down and watch a film together tonight so I'm racing to get everything done that I need to, including scheduling this post.

In keeping with the Craft-Room Challenge, here is the other postcard that I made over the weekend:

I used DIs on the cream patterned oriental background paper, then some further DIs through masks.  As I'm really starting to enjoy stamping onto tissue and layering onto my project (I can see lots of benefits to this!),  I stamped the building, sentiments and six flowers onto tissue then carefully layered them on using Ranger Glue & Seal Matte (I love this stuff!), arranging three flowers in opposite corners.  I coloured the flowers with Worn Lipstick DI and added some gems (not too sure about the gems).  The centre image has been stamped in Jet Black Stazon onto previously alcohol inked glossy card - the background is pale pink/purple but this doesn't show up too good in the photo - then matted & layered twice and adhered to the postcard.

Stamps are by Paperartsy (Ink & the Dog) - Asian Plate 4

I'd like to enter this into The Stamp Man Challenge Collage/Collage Backgrounds, Happy Daze Challenge - An Explosion of Colour, and Let's Ink It Up - Favourite Technique.

This is a lot more colourful than my usual projects as I love very soft & muted colours, but I hope you like it!

Enjoy the rest of the week!
