Craft Stamper October Challenge~Half Way Point

It is the midway point of the CS Take It Make It Challenge, have you entered your creation yet?  I will be using the same Master board technique as before but with different colors.  I have included a tutorial technique sharing how I made this postcard.

I made a Master board with Vibrant Turquoise, Lemon Zest and Fresh Lime Dylusions Spray inks sprayed onto a foam ink pad.  The large stamp is an old one from Stampers Anonymous.  When the Master board is dry it can be cut into card backgrounds or post cards.

I cut a piece measuring 4" by 6" since this is the size of a postcard.  Next I stamped a Dina Wakley's  image using Jet Black StazOn ink and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder.  I also stamped some mail type stamps to the mix.

Now to dress up my silhouette.  I added a head from my Marie-Antoinette collection, a little tinsel twine to her waist, some rhinestones to her dress and a phrase from Dylusions.

I hope you will enter in the fun at the Craft Stamper Challenge, you still have plenty of time and lots of inspiration from the Design Team.  Don't forget there are prizes to be won!

  2. hahaha...what a fun play on the words for font styles. Love your idea to dress up the silhouette.

  3. That is fabulous and I'd forgotten that I have that Carte Postal stamp lol. Have a great weekend, Elizabeth xxx

  4. Marie never looked hotter!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE the sentiment!!! Awesome piece and so clever!

  5. So incredibly clever!
    I not only love the way you combined the Dina Wakley stamp (I so love that stamp but alas not in my stash ... as yet!) with a Marie Antoinette head and if that were not clever enough, you go on to be so creative in your use of text. A very memorable piece of postcard art.

  6. You cracked me up with this the sentiment Rennee.
