"Staycation" Postcard by Angie Coomber
Hello arty friends,
How are you all?
We are having very strange, mixed weather in this part of the world, quite a lot of rain and not very summery at all. Which got me thinking about how different holidays are for a lot of us at the moment, so I created a "Staycation" postcard.
I have a set of blank watercolour postcards which I used for this.
I used the Happy Place stamp set to stamp some images on watercolour paper.
I used watercolours to colour some of these in and used coloured pencils to add some shading.
Next I used one of the stamps from the Pencil Marks #1 set, embossing ink and clear embossing powder to add some texture to the background, followed by Oxide Inks in shades of blue & green.
I wiped over the whole postcard with a piece of kitchen towel to make the white embossed area stand out, then stamped some gold stars on the dark blue area.
Finally I glued the houses onto the card (I cut off and rearranged some of the trees), and used an old alphabet stamp set to stamp the word "staycation".
Now who should I send it to...?
Look after yourselves,
Until next time,
