Laurel Burch Mail Art at the Craft Barn - Monday 24th April

 
Hi everyone, I'm sharing another of my mail art postcards today which we're going to be making at the Craft Barn on Monday. I enjoy working with these images and they're great for colouring and masking too which is what we'll be doing. I made this a large postcard size turned to portrait orientation so I could create the scene.
 
 
I masked the images from the Blossoming woman set and used the template that comes with the set which helps with that. There's also a stencil included so the set is excellent value for money as you get both a positive and negative version of the female figure.
 
 
These cats are gorgeous, I've used the three from the Indigo Cats set (large, medium and small) and the single cat and bird stamp, Feline Friend. The stamps work so well with bright colours of distress inks which is what I've used together with pencils, a bit of white marker and some stickles for sparkle
I'll be sharing another postcard tomorrow.

Fabulous colours. Great images. Wish I could be there to do something really out of comfort zone. I was at Sandy's house on Thursday to give Ian a hair and beard cut! Hugs, Carol S.xx
