Sunday Postcard Art...Eggs!

What a cracking theme...lol...
Over at Sunday Postcard Art  this week's challenge is now underway...love the theme, its so different and was chosen by Hazel...

                              Here is my" Egg" postcard.....


I wasn't sure if I could create a postcard with this theme without going digital...but I am pleased to say I did manage to craft it.
I sourced some postcard backing paper from some of my scraps and glued that to my postcard..it was pretty bare so with some stamps I created a busier background.
The label was cut from a scrap of backing paper ( I throw very little away,lol ) as well as the bird and crowns.
The little girl and eggs were from some free downloads that I printed about a year ago. The ladybug I stamped and coloured in red.


I know somewhere in the depths of my craft room I have a couple of tiny bird's nest, but do you think I could find them...no.
So I coloured some string and raffia with distress inks and created a nest by twisting and weaving the fibres...actually quite pleased with the way it turned out...took a while to get the ink off my fingers though!
I did use glossy accents on the little girlies wings and on the bird and eggs, but it dosen't really show in the photos....stickles stardust glitter on the crowns.
So, if you want to join in the fun..make your postcard (4" x 6") and enter their challenge..take a look at the other entries too...some amazing talent over there.

I love the mail art approach. Your card is gorgeous! I also enjoyed your journey from beginning to end. It's a great thing to know how a picture is designed and created.

NO DIGI HERE! Love that your layers are actually layers, Sandie! What amazes me is that you were able to stick to your color scheme while using up scraps from your stash! Brilliant work, my friend!
