The top center post card had Alcohol Inks smooshed onto glossy card stock, then stamped with flowers with die cut flowers affixed atop of the stamped flowers. The flowers which is a stamp from VAP Scrap. The square word stamp is from Great Impressions, and the smaller word stamp is from Hero Arts.
The post card in the upper right hand corner has Alcohol Inks smooshed onto glossy card stock. The flat and fireworks were stamped onto a piece of transparency film and affixed with clear glue. The word stamp is from Hero Arts. (I'm sorry but I don't remember where I got the die cut "grateful" from.) I was going for a "patriotic theme" with this post card.
The bottom left I used a piece of clip art that I had laying around for ages, so I'm sorry, but I don't remember how I got this one. I affixed a "green gem" atop the harp, with a silk flower affixed at the bottom. Here I was trying for an "Irish theme" post card. Nothing else was added, and will leave up to my partner if she/he wants to add anything.
The bottom center post card I adhered a map piece that I applied distress ink to. I stamped the couple with Memories Black Ink, colored them in and affixed a "purplish" gem to the ladies hat. The words "favorite and escape" I received from a good friend and to me this was the "right" place to use these.
The bottom right post card was embossed with Forest Branches by Cuttlebug, and of which I made them look like Arizona's Ocotillo plants which I think are one of the prettiest flowering plants there is. When there is no water for these plants, the "flowers/leaves" fall off and all you have left are stark reminder of what "was" there. I stamped the "practising" cowboy, shooting at a sign, of which the stamps are from I Brake For Stamps. I affixed a "white" flower to the bottom right as it reminded me of the flowers in AZ that bloom only at night. The bottom border are flowers that you press on, and I'm sorry I don't remember the name of these.
I hope you enjoyed my ramblings of my Post Card swaps photos, and if you wish please leave a comment. Until next time.............
