Postcard Art

Today's challenge at Sunday's Postcard Art was to alter a real postcard. After spending a considerable amount of time hunting for a real postcard (rejecting the postcard reminder from Jiffy Lube that I needed an oil change) I chose this second postcard shown. This vintage Halloween postcard was all I could find. Seeing that I wasn't that crazy about the image, I decided I'd alter that.
I was quite pleased with the results shown in my first postcard here. I've been wanting to use the sentiment stamp, "Do one thing every day that scares you," for a while on a Halloween card and it seemed to fit perfectly here.

I love that sentiment....does looking in the mirror count? Your alteration is so much better than the original. Great job!
