The Sunday Postcard Art challenge is so named because the challenge is issued each Sunday. Marion is our host this week with the theme of November Rain, and I have "answered" her challenge on Sunday! Likely this won't happen again anytime soon, but this afternoon the New England Patriots' game is on and my husband is occupied!
I cut a piece of watercolor paper to the standard postcard size of 4" x 6" and printed an excerpt from Dan Wittenkeller's poem November Rain directly onto my postcard. I stamped my image ("Portland" from Stampotique Originals) directly onto the postcard and colored her with colored pencils. The "Leaf" stamp, also from Stampotique, was used several times, each time being inked up with fall colors from the Tim Holtz "mini's" collection. I made a mask of the leaf image and at the end inked it in brighter colors and adhered it to the postcard. Finally, I used a blending tool to ink up the edges of the postcard.
Thanks for stopping by today and for taking a moment to leave a comment so that I will know you were here!
I am entering this artwork in the Craft Stamper Magazine "Take It Make It" November challenge.
