April Kindness Postcard

 Having a challenge making a 4 x 6 inch postcard today, using a background I designed on the gelli plate and trimmed to size. My images were printed onto water colour paper. Spectrum Aqua pens were used to colour. Images were fussy cut by hand and put into place. I did foam mount the dress but it doesn't show here as neither does the glitter. I intend posting this off to a special friend.
Love these quirky images and have used

Conniecrafter said...

She is just too cute, like the pattern on her dress, the birds are so cute perched on her arms. That background is so cool! Like how you did the sentiment. Do you use your Aqua pens straight to the paper or do you put them on surface and then add them with a paint brush? I have them too and found I can only use them by using the with a paint brush.

Monica C. said...
