Month 3 - week 8

Its Friday again....I've just had a gorgeous week off and boy has the weather been good to us, for a change!!

So, we're on Month 3 of SCD and another great challenge:-

POSTCARDS
Size 6"x4" - can be used either way, ie 6x4 or 4x6
any colour any style unless specified by the theme set...

So to this weeks theme:-

FACES

Here's my take:-


On my craft mat I dabbed some distress ink, broken china, then spritzed it with water until droplets occurred, I then took a piece of white card and placed it onto mat and then swished!. Third coast goddess stamp was then stamped with black ink on top and hi-lighted with white pen, various other face stamps were then stamped into the hair and spaces...a little clay face painted with various inks was added along with a faces rubon and some mini gems....raffia around the top finished it off.

Please pop on over to SCD and see what the other members of the DT have come up with - there are some gorgeous postcards over there and I hope that you'll all be inspired to join in.

Don't forget that if you don't have a blog to display your postcards email me here and I'll post them at the end of the SCD post for you.
