Another OCC challenge! I totally loved this one at first sight! I am super into vintage postcards which what I thought of first! I’m not sure if this one is being evaluated for the Design Team but why not play anyway? Especially when it is fun!
I’ve been wanting to make some sort of home dec item for ages but never quite figured out what I wanted to do. I started with the postcard, sized to accommodate the PostCard stamp and the postmarks. It was already 3x5 and I wondered how large my card would have to be to balance it out! Next thing I knew, I was knee-deep in my alterables drawer and I pulled out an artist canvas, maybe 6x8’?

Isn’t this paper gorgeous? It is from an Organic Stack and for the life of me, I can’t remember who makes it! Yep, I am too lazy to get up to check, I’ll hopefully remember to add it later! Come one, it is after midnight!
The lettering is all done with JustRite Stampers, both Trompe Script and Times. The photo doesn’t do justice to the GORGEOUS printed brown satin ribbon I have hoarded for years. I finally have a fabulous place to use it! In case you are wondering, this is a wall hanging so the ribbon and bow you see flopped over the top are for the hanger. I took it down to photograph it because the wall colour is ugly and the light sucks. In the day light, it looks fabulous though.
