Postcard Art exchange… love letters and old lace

I have another postcard to share with you that I made for a swap. The theme was love letters and old lace. 

I started with modelling paste through a Donna Downey script stencil and then let it dry. 

Whilst it was drying I decided to use one of the Wendy Vecchi art parts I bought in the sale ages ago for the main feature. I covered the lady in gesso then stamped script in archival sepia and then added distress stain in several layers. 

Next to add colour to the postcard base. I used Distress inks and blended them with the blending tool. 

Now time to add the lace … 

I chose a piece of very wide lace and some trim and decided to add some glass bead gel too. This was it still wet.  I also added the lady using silicone gel glue. 

The next day once it was dry it was time for the title and some dots of liquid pearls. 

Love how the bead gel has brought through the colour of the distress inks and how vintage this looks.  

I also finished off with some gold pen.

Hopefully Alison who is the recipient will like it too! 

Happy crafting!
