A Post Card

The new challenge at Artful Times is make a post card using some alphabet letters,script. Brilliant samples from the Artful team as always and all very different to inspire.

I painted my background with H20 paints then spritzed them and let them all run into each other. Next I added  gold alcohol ink dabs. Now into paint shop pro to add the digital image of a Steampunk boot that I got from here -all free images and some really interesting ones. The picture with the clock I have had for a while and I did add some script at the right bottom corner but it isn't very visible now :(

I used a cog stamp from Kanban to fill the corner and some peel-offs--just because:)


  1. Fabulous postcard Chrissie :) love everything about it

  2. Lovely card Chrissie, I am just working on mine. Had to laugh at your comment about Thelma's knees - I keep putting it into my story because I need to keep myself going! I have knee surgery in October, and am nor really looking forward to it! Seems to be a universal problem! Hugs, Valerie

  9. What a fab idea has just sprung to mind after seeing your entry and reading your blog post. Why not write up to a manufacturer and get them to produce some Steampunk Boots for winter. In the meantime why not alter doe existing boots of your own?
    Love your card Chrissie, sorry I got carried away - must try that background with the H2o's.
    Thanks for joining us at Artful Times - Hugs, Neet xx
