Postcards

I joined in the 3 Creative Studios recent postcard swap and here are the postcards I made to send to my swap partners.

 

These started as fabric-backed paper for the background. I then created paper castings with Sulky Paper Solvy and rubber stamps and brass stencils. I stitched the paper castings to the postcard to secure them in place and then I used metallic paints to gild them. The theme of the postcard swap was Gilded Age.

If you'd like to participate in the 3 Creative Studios challenges...watch the 3CS blog for announcements. We have several that are going and you might find one that interests you. Also on our blog are occasional give aways, product reviews, Tips on Tuesdays, and more.

  3. I really love these. I wish I'd seen them before I gave away those metal stencils!

  4. Your post cards really have the gilded age appearance. I love the dimensionality of the paper castings you made. Happy swapping...
