Days Gone By Postcard

I was delighted that I was asked to be the Hostess over at  Sunday Postcard Art  this week...
In case you have never visited, its a challenge blog just for Postcards..any medium, just stay within the chosen theme each week...and of course your postcard must measure 4"x 6"
The theme I have chosen is Days Gone By...or Nostalgia.

For the base of my postcard I used Oxide Inks and some torn papers. I then swiped over it with a very thin layer of gesso.
I stamped the words and the postcard script from stamps in my stash.
The butterfly was die cut from some spare card that had been coloured with Oxide Inks..then stamped and added to the postcard.
The image, would you believe is actually "Me"..I was 3yrs cousin Stuart is stood next to me, he is 18 months older than me.
This photo was taken by my mother...we had been for a walk and my mother and my auntie added the wild flowers to our ears, well not in our ears, they were looped over the top, lol.
Notice Stuart, being a typical boy, is holding his for me I am carrying an old camera case...

I would love it if you would pop over and visit the blog..maybe you would like to join in..I hope so..

The photo must have been black and white. Nice that you've placed them in a colored children's world.
