Havin' a Party???

...this is #2 of 4 party postcards for the Gingersnaps swap...did I mention that I am the UK Co-Ordinator for the swap??? Oh, I did? Well, never mind, I like the sound of it...UK Co-Ordinator...makes the job sound very impressive LOL I wrote on the back of each postcard to make it look more like a proper postcard




Anyways...a very quick post cos...I am in a rush...more rushier than normal...cos I want to blog this piece and then get into my nice cosy bed and sleep for at least 7 hours...we have to be up and about early in the morning ... and I am so not a morning person... well, not until I have had at least three screamingly hot coffee's `:o$ The postcards are 4" x 6" in size and made from mountboard...I used Distress Inks, Bundled Sage, Stormy Sky and Chipped Sapphire and some Studio 490 stamps, Grungepaper, Grungeboard, Maya Road Chippy alpha's and frame...some Maya Road pins, a couple of sticky back gems and a Martha Stewart punch...popped it all together and then added some Rock Candy Stickles to the word. The stash used is all available from The Stamp Attic.




Thanks for looking...oh..and before I go...do you have a fave new Distress ink colour? Only, I loved Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge...then I loved Crushed Olive and Pumice Stone...but today I am in lurve with Stormy Sky and Bundled Sage together...and...is it just me...or does anyone else think that the Bundled Sage is similar in colour to Juniper Adirondack??? Ah, just me then ~ROFL~ Have a great day

No, not just you - Bundled Sage (which I've not had chance to use in anger yet) is similar to Adirondack Juniper. Love your postcard, those little stick pins look great!

Wendy said...
