Tropical Dreams Mixed Media Postcard

Hi all

I am so ready for the beach!! 
It feels like ages since I have visited those sandy shores. 
Here I have created a altered postcard to remind us of the sea and sand.
Enjoy!

Start off by covering a postcard in gesso and leaving it to dry. 


Next paint over with lime green acrylic paint and add a bit of bright yellow paint to the center.


Paint over this with some light orange paint and let dry before spritzing the postcard with mist inks.


Use texture stamps along the edges of the postcard with  archival safe ink so it doesn't smudge.


Tear up some paper scraps and then spray ink onto them.
 Add these to your post card and  stamp over the top with a texture stamp.


Paint a mdf shape, then adhere all the pieces onto the postcard. 



Add dyed cheesecloth to the ship wheel. Stamp out a pair of flip flops onto card and colour them in before cutting them out and adhering them in place.. 
Finish your postcard with die-cut shapes and gems,
