Sunday Postcard Art


This is my postcard for the Christmas theme at Sunday Postcard Art.
This started by stamping a parentheses on some cream cardstock and then creating a frame with my inkpad all the way around.   I used a Stampers Anonymous stamp to create the splattered background.  First I stamped it in Brilliance gold ink, but when that didn't stand out enough I added some gold Radiant Pearls to it which increased the color.  Finally, I printed out one of my favorite Christmas card images on vellum and then cut it out to add to my postcard.
