ART FROM THE ROAD: Sunday Postcard Art Challenge ( 07-01-18)

I am delighted that Mandy Chilvers has invited me to host the Sunday Postcard Art challenge this week. I have chosen SHOES/FOOTWEAR as the challenge topic and hope you will take some time this week to play along. You will find the details here.

To create this postcard I began by cutting a scrap piece of designer paper to the required size of 4x6". Next, I used two stamps from Stampotique Originals, Vintage Postcard and 1879 Postmark. My focal image is from Stampendous! (called Heels). I stamped this image on a piece of "wipe-off" paper (a piece of paper used to wipe off paint from a brayer) from another vintage project, then cut it out and adhered it to my postcard. I did not use the text that accompanied this image but, instead, used one of Dyan Reaveley's quirky text stamps from Stampers Anonymous. And done! A simple project but not without a bit of attitude!

Thank you for stopping by and for taking a moment to leave a comment. Both inspire me!

Anne is the challenger this week at Sunday Postcard Art and she has chosen ASIAN as her challenge theme. I just happened to have a family of Asian women (Kokeshi Dolls), digital stamps that I had purchased from Vera Lane Studio some time ago. I have used four of the five ladies, Keomi, Megumi, Sakura and Akimi as the mother.

I began with a scrap piece of designer paper which I thought had a bit of an Asian flare. I cut it to 4x6". I resized the images on my computer and printed them off on buff paper so that I didn't have to fuss with their complexions. Their kimonos were created by printing the images onto scraps of paper cut to size and inserted into my printer tray. I then cut the kimonos out. The hair and ornaments were colored with Copics. The ladies were then "dressed" and adhered to my postcard.

I did an internet search for quotes about mothers and daughters and finally chose one for the project. 

I hope you will take time to visit the Sunday Postcard Art website, where you will find the details of the challenge. Artwork submitted to the challenge should be in by Friday each week.
