Blue yonder...

Hello everyone,

I did another postcard with pattern paper today. Just to show that it doesn't have to cost much time to make a background. I took a piece of pattern paper from a paper pack by 7Dots Studio called 'Destination Unknown', designed by DeeDee Catron. I love this paper pack...
I cut it to size (6x4) and brayered some paint on it. I used two shades of turquoise and some white making sure not to cover everything up. The paper is all over greyish with a darker print....

I left the middel of the paper as it was. Also in the top right corner you can still see some of the print on this paper. Anyway, next I stamped the background with the trees and the dictionary text. 
I then stamped the boys and coloured them with coloured pencils... I also used the pencils to 'ground' the trees and the boys.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment. And that was it... 

I used stamps from the latest new release:

Thank you so much for stopping by today !
