Wish you were here

The new Just for Fun Challenge is to make your own postcards, pop over and see the fabulous examples and all the instructions for this theme here
As I am currently leading the nomadic life in our caravan, my stash is a bit limited. I used Aspects of Design stamps as well as some that are so old, I cannot name the maker. I did manage to do a bit of embossing in a couple of the corners.
The background is coloured using blocks of distress inks, a selection of greens and blue.

Over at Linda's StudioL3 Week7  Grungy Monday is exploring Tim Holtz Distress Ink Colour Blocking.
So I am am showing my version of this technique there as well.
I don't normally send postcards, but I think this is a great idea and wonder what the postie  will think of this one.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look at my card and please forgive me if I don't call by to your blogs, as internet connections in caravan land are not always that good.

  10. Am so glad you enjoyed the subject of this weeks challenge over on JFF. What a super postcard it is too - love the subject matter and the colouring. One would find it hard to believe you created this with a minimum of stash when they see the results. Well done on such a lovely entry and thanks for taking part. Hugs, Neet x
