As soon as I heard about Darcy's Post Card challenge over at her blog Art and Sole, I was totally intrigued by the idea and had to play along. I love mail art so I couldn't resist, its a fantastic challenge that involved making a postcard each week for 52 weeks. I won't give you all the details, you can visit Darcy's blog and find out all about it, click the button in my sidebar for all the details. I haven't had much time for crafting but managed to make this quick postcard from our first country 'Austria'
My characters are Miss Rosemary Wilton, aged 17 and her sweetheart Mr Jonathon Baker aged 18. Their romance is set in the early part of the 20th century. The course of true love never runs smoothly and the young couple have been sent their separate ways by their parents in an attempt to end their budding romance. Their homes are in the same village in a quiet rural area of England and to avoid their parents finding out that they are communicating, they are both writing to Rosemary's older sister's address. Rosemary is travelling with her Aunt Mabel and Jonathon has been sent on an extended trip with his older brother James. Rosemary and James are hoping that they can engineer thing so that their paths cross and they can be reunited.
Ahhhh how sweet! Watch this space though as hopefully they may have some adventures along the way lol.
I've made a quick postcard using my new Winter distress inks and Clarity stamps create a snowy landscape that I cut with nesties. I created the 'stamp' for the back with perforated postage paper and the same inks/stamps. Now I've just got to get myself organised and make a book to keep them all in :-)
Thanks for calling by, are you tempted to travel along with Darcy's challenge?
