Embossed Postcard

Morning and we have a new ATG challenge at Daisy Chain and I made a poscard which I also entered into a postcard swap on FB.I stamped and heat embossed the Indigo Blu image in black and the corner flourishes(think they are from Sheena Douglas) in white-mistake because when I covered the card with panpastel it coloured the white too-I then edged the card with a black soot Distress Ink pad.It has to be one layer to go throught the post as a postcard sooo-done!Just sharing a couple of quirky comments from Holly-Ann(grandaughter 8yrs)she wanted a birthday card for a friend and was torn between a small one and a large one -really love the larger one but best take the small as she lives in a bungalow-right!!!She got so excited having a balloon fight with her grandad she came out with ---oooh I could lick a pig???really lol.

  9. Well you can't that you made a mistake here Carol, this is gorgeous! Just looks like an amazing subtle pattern and textured design. I actually think it works really well the way it is because perhaps the white may have pulled focus from the amazing focal image. Gorgeous colour, love it. hugs :)

  10. oooooh - how magnificent, Carol! I love the textures you have achieved. I would NEVER have known about the mistake had you not mentioned it. I just assumed it was a background of textures LOL - don't you just love happy mistakes like that? Truly looks amazing. Every time I see this stamp image, it melts my heart - so gorgeous!
