I was taking a wander through town recently and came across some blank postcards, and instantly thought what a good idea. You could decorated them any way you wanted, and use them as intended, make sets of them for gifts, or even just to drop somebody a note to tell them your thinking of them.
I used several different colours of Distress ink, including shabby shutter, twisted citron and frayed burlap. I used the same process on all three postcards pictured above, which started by blended two different Distress inks over the whole postcard. Then stamping over the top with a background stamp, The one below shows the chicken wire background stamp.
Over this on all the postcards I stamped with various cogs and springs from the Tick Tock stamp set, using different distress inks.
Using black archival ink, I stamped the large clock face and the text from the same set of stamps and doodled around the edges with a black pen. It was such a fun,quick, simple idea, and so handy to have a few made up and sitting about. Even just to flick through and cut apart for other projects,
