Sunday Postcard Art - Children

Pff..time flies when you have a baby and work 32 hours a week and feeling sick... But I have promised myself to not miss any of the Sunday Postcard Challenges, so a card might be the only thing I create in a week.... I need this creative time although it is not much.

The topic this week is Children!
Although it would be obvious to use a pic (altered) of Bincke, I decided not to go for the obvious. Instead I used a vintage diecut of a little girl. The black looking square is actually mirror paper, which I used so that you could look in to the mirror and see your own inner child haha...
Well....the scanner messed it up.



The background for this card was made a long time ago.
Now and then when I don't have inspiration to make a specific thing, I just start making backgrounds to be used in a later project. This one was made using versamark resist technique and Ecoline.
If you want you can copy it from my blog and use it in one of your own projects.
There is only 1 restriction: you gotta show me how you used it okay?



enjoy your sunday and have a look at all the other Children .
