Am I Blue?
No I'm not, but this postcard is. The base is scrap card from the cover of a drawing pad given a coat of acrylic paint. The turquoise patch towards the centre is a scrap of shaving foam marble paper, and the dark strip along the bottom is printed chiffon, courtesy of someone who wanted a dress shortening. This was all layered together using PVA. When this had dried overnight, I added some decoration with home carved stamps and a Kaleidoscope ink pad, and the focal point is a reduced vintage postcard, glued on with Uhu and bordered with a textured fabric paint that I found in the Todo Cien (Spanish equivalent of the Pound/Dollar Store).
