A postcard from the seaside..

Hello everyone,

For my second inspiration piece for the "Hot Summer Days" challenge over at Country View Challenges I have made a postcard. We all send postcards home to our families when we are on holiday, don't we ?


This card was one of my stack of gelli printed cards. These are fabulous but it is making me lazy... I grab them almost all the time now....
I added the bricks with a stencil and some modelling paste. The stamping on the background was done with stamps from a set by Crafty Individuals.  I added an old postage stamp just for fun. The lizard is by Katzelkraft and I stamped him with VersaMark ink and used extra fine white embossing powder to heat emboss the image. I coloured it with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I actually did two, one in orange and this one. I preferred this one. He was adhered with dimensional tape. 
That was it ! Below are two detail photo's.







You have until the end of the month to play along with us. Please read the rules first ! You'll find them on the Country View Challenges blog. (Link up top)

Thank you so much for stopping by today !

  7. Wonderful card, Corrie! Love your stamped lizard and the colours of your "lazy" background (why not use former work?! You spent time ago when you created it!)
    Have a nice week!
