Italia


Postcard created for the Wednesday Stamper Challenge. The background was made using Distress Inks in Broken China, Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo. This was stamped with the main image in black, then was masked whilst the Italian Cities background text was stamped in Broken China. Next the Italia text and the post marks were added and the greetings text, cut out and added. The whole thing was then mounted onto black card stock to add contrast.

Rachel, you do such a great job explaining your work. I think we learn a lot from each other and their processes. Your postcard is so gorgeous. I love the intensity of the colors and the black behind your card really sets it off.
