Postcard ART for the birds....

.....thought I would play with paper today so I made my 8 postcards for a swap. We were to make 4x6 postcards with birds as the theme on the front. The flip side was to have the words "Postcard" along with some writing and my name. I debated for quite awhile where to start. I began looking through my newest paper stack and found these awesome birds in the DCWV Ciao Bella stack.



They were embellished with some clear flourish stamps, flowers, words and bird stamps. I must say I really like how they turned out. At first they seemed to stark for my tastes but I aged them with some Stazon Saddle Brown Ink and ta-da....they look much more vintage now. The 8 postcards I receive back will be bound into a mini ART book. Sounds divine to me!! :)




There are 2 of each front side






and 3 different back sides.
I used 3 bird quotes for the "text" and my name, group and date as the "address".

These are wonderful, Shelly!

I meant to sign up for the swap, thought I had plenty of time, then realized that I was looking at the due date instead of the sign-up date, so I was way too late! Oh well, there's always a next time!! Lucky people who will get your postcards! Beautiful!! XOXO

The paper stock is quite pretty (must resist temptation to shop) and what you did with it is really beautiful.
And I don't even like birds!

Shelly...love your birdie postcards. I looked at that paper, but didn't buy it. Maybe I will have to rethink that. :-)
Anyway, they are all wonderful.
