The Postcard stamp makes a lovely frame for a waterside scene. I inked the parts of Postcard image I wanted with a Midnight Muse marker, stamped it, cut it out and sponged in the background. The birds were stamped over the top...
... you can see that better in this photo. TIP: Try inking these birds with markers using one colour for the actual birds and keeping their reflections the same colour as the background. What do you think of the stamped strip at the bottom of the card? It's from Mosaic Madness and I used it because I liked the way it has the same wood-carved feel as Postcard.
Now, you may have noticed the little package in the top photo.
Are you dying to know what's in it?
Oh go on then...

It's Friday and the weekend starts here! Last weekend my daughter came into the living room wearing a top covered in shiny sequins. "Sparkles at you!" she said. I smiled at her. "Oooh - look at you!" I said. "Yes," she said. "Je suis un disco ball! I could walk into a room and say 'yay, the party has arrived - everyone can start dancing now!'" Bless her!
Have a great weekend and I'll see you very soon,
