Watch With Glittering Eyes

Morning and first of all I would like to welcome my new followers----Scarlett,Monica,Doris and Valerie.

I have a postcard to share which I made for a FB forum swap-UK.Stampers-they host postcard/tags/inches/ATC/Trading Coins every month or a forum just to share your stamping projects.Postcards must be one layer and suitable for posting as is.
The background is distress ink and stamps from AALL&Create/Bee Crafty and craft mag freebies-stencils from Tim Holtz-lines made with ruler and fineliner.
challenges-
crafty cardmakers-green
double trouble-green
heart2heart-green
TTCRD-ATG
digi choosday-ATG
crafty creations-ATG
Pennys challenges-ATG
as you like it-dies/stencils-usually I prefer dies as they fit most occasions and can add quite a few without looking OTT-but for more mixed media or stamping I prefer stencils.
krafty chicks-shades of green
lost coast portal-round and round
creatalicious-monochrome
sweet stampin-use green
Penny Black and more-going round in circles
the artistic stamper-green
creative inspirations-Spring greens
pile it on-favourite colour-Green
Thank you for dropping by and any comments are much appreciated---been a little slow on the blogging and commenting this week-hubby not been well all week so except for some inane dotting about not been in the mood for much else he feels slightly better today so thought I would make an effort and hopefully catch up with you all tomorrow

A great postcard for this months theme, loads to look at and I really love how you've added the simple lines which are so effective. Many thanks for joining us this month at Penny Black and More xxxx

Leslie Miller said...

I used to enjoy making postcards! I would even do one-sided lamination. Fun! You make the best backgrounds. You really have an eye for it, especially on this one! Actually, that was an unintended pun. I'm sorry your hubby hasn't been feeling well. Concern for a loved one can take away the crafty urges.

Tracy Welham said...

Fantastic mixed media piece. Creative Blessings, Tracy x
