Wish you were here …………

Good morning everyone and I hope the sun is shining for you. We have a Magpie Day over at Country View Challenges today and the Design Team are showcasing Scenic Postcards.


With hardly anything "scenic" in my (vast) stamp collection I thought I would create a vintage sepia looking postcard using these lovely Artistic Outpost stamps which I never tire of.



I managed to puchase a set of three Postcard stamps whilst in New York to make my own postcards and I have used this beauty on a piece of Prima 4x6 Journalling Notecard.


I used a combination of Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Coffee Arcival Ink for the stamping and also for "distressing" the journalling notecard.

I do hope you will hop on over to Country View Challenges and check out the rest of the scenic postcards - there are some beauties!

Have a lovely weekend and thank you for joining me today.
