Postcard Collage

Hello everyone, I'm back again with another project created using Floribunda Net, one of this month's featured stamps from Chocolate Baroque.

I decided to create a piece of collage in the style of an old postcard as the focal point for my card, and so I cut a piece of scrapbook paper to the correct size, and gathered a selection of stamps that I could use to create my postcard. I chose a couple of butterflies, and two stamps from a great little mini set found within this collection.

I stamped the butterflies first, and covered them with a mask, before adding the large flower stamp. I then added the little postage mark, and the postcard sentiment last. I coloured the images with Polychromos pencils, and edged the piece with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.

I created a little tag from a piece of scrap card to fit a small paper wallet, and then coloured the tag with Wild Honey Distress Ink. I stamped a fitting sentiment, taken from the Amazing Birthday stamp set onto the tag and added some stamps from the Mail Art mini stamp set as before, to complete the tag, along with some dark brown ribbon.

I created a background for the card using a piece of smooth watercolour paper, and added first Wild Honey, then Peeled Paint Distress Ink, using the wrinkle free distress technique. I edged the background with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, before matting it onto dark brown card.
There are still a few more days of inspiration using these lovely large stamps over on the Design Team blog, so be sure to check out what my team mates have been making. Thanks for stopping by, xx

Your use of the dark brown in this composition is wonderful the way the ribbon echoes the little wallet & your card base not to mention the hints of brown on the scrapbook paper & your rose stems. The orange roses are echoed superbly by the Wild Honey & I particularly like the way your blue butterflies pop against the roses. Even the green leaves of your roses are picked out by the Peeled Paint. There is real pleasure in studying your use of the colour: not just the selection of colours themselves but the way you distribute them around your composition.
