Post Card from Maida.Hill

Hi everyone hope you are all well. Today I am bringing to you a 
project using the lovely Carte Postale plate from the 
Artistic Stamper 

I also used the butterflies from the insects & butterflies plate and the small
 clock from the tick tock plate.

Firstly I coloured a lightweight card with distress inks in 
scattered straw, antique linen with a bit of
Vintage photo.

I die cut a piece of thicker card with Tim Holtz on the edge die torn notebook.
I coloured a second piece with the same colours and edged
 with black soot distress ink.

I stamped the post card stamp onto the lighter card in versafine onyx black
and clear embossed it 

Next I stamped the script from the carte postal stamp in 
vintage photo.

I knocked it back a bit with a baby wipe.

The clock face was stamped onto distress coloured card 
and clear embossed the butterflies were stamped in 
chipped Sapphire distress inks and clear embossed
then gently sprayed with mica spray. 

The post marks were triple embossed with gold embossing powder,
and then cut out and fixed. 

Finally I added a brass clock to sit over the clock face, a final sweep
with black soot distress ink, a keyhole and key 
glued it all onto black card to 
complete the project.

Thank you for stopping by hope this project inspires you to 
dig out your distress inks and have a play.
Have a great day!
Cheers Dee x
