I said I'd be back!

Hello Again,

For my second post today I am sharing a postcard created for one of the other swaps this month in UK Stampers Forum.  This time the theme is numbers.

I've used PaperArtsy stamps throughout on this piece, mainly HotPicks sets.  I stamped the main image (affectionately known as Shrek Girl amongst PaperArtsy fans) and then created a mask to cover her while I blended Distress Oxides and did all the random stamping on the background.

When I removed the masks I decided not to add much colour to Shrek Girl as I liked the way she popped from the background so I just coloured little bits and then added Glossy Accents to her heart.  

And speaking of hearts..... when I'd finished this piece I realised it fits the fab Country View Crafts challenge again so I'm off to link it up. 

It might be next week before I'm back again so I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Lesley  Xx

A fabulous postcard, I love the colours you've used and the fact that you've left the main image mainly monochrome.
