All Things Tim Yahoo Group Halloween Postcard Swap
This is the first of 3 postcards I made for the ATT Yahoo Group Halloween Postcard Swap. I will be posting the others on the 26th and 27th. This is a card I actually started during the class I took online about collage techniques (taught by Claudine Hellmuth).
Techniques to make this postcard include - The little girl is a digital image printed on an iridescent specialty paper which was torn to make interesting edge. Hat is cut from a paper with ribbon trim and rhinestone star. Her buttons are also rhinestone stars. Pumpkin is stamped out on cardstock, trimmed, colored, and then covered with Ranger Glossy Accents. Trim underneath girl is ribbon, topped with glow-in-the-dark rick rack, sewn down with two black mini-buttons. The word "candy" on background made with Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folder and my wax paper resist technique is highlighted with Ranger Glossy Accents and then further highlighted by going around the letters using Picket Fence Distress Marker.
The back is made to look like a postcard using "Postcard" stamp from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous The Journey collection. Candies are stamps from Martha Stewart Halloween collection and are covered in Ranger Glossy Accents. The fake stamp is a Hero Arts Shadow stamp which I then stamped a little witch's hat from Studio G ($1 set) and some numbers. The "Trick or Treat" is also from a Martha Stewart set and I highlighted it with Ranger Glossy Accents as well as some Sakura Gelly Roll glitter pens. Here is a closeup of that...
Hope you enjoyed looking and come back to see my other two postcards in the next few day. Thanks.
