We're All Going On A Summer Holiday

Good morning and a very happy Thursday. We're halfway through the month already, so it's time for a new challenge at Rubber Dance, and in keeping with the warmer weather, we've chosen Summer Holidays. Here's my holiday postcard.

I started by colouring a postcard with sprays and Distress Oxides. This was my first real play with the DO's and I was very impressed.

Then I started with the stamping, I've used Retro Beach and some bubble wrap and gesso for texture.

Obviously a postcard needs a stamp, so I've used a Norwegian one from Bibi that was on the envelope that my stamps came in. The postmark is from Artfully Stamped

These images are all from Retro Beach. I've made a Distress Oxide background, then stamped in a DO and sprayed again with water. I really do like the vintage effect.

Here they are all sewn down.

This is the nearest you'll ever get to a holiday postcard from me - it used to spoil my holiday thinking what to write on a card - a phone call is much easier :-)

So please get in the holiday mood and join in with our challenge, you may win some wonderful Rubber Dance stamps. 

As always the stamps are P&P free on orders 15 Euros and above by quoting SDFreeShip. Have a fun day, and thanks very much for looking x

  7. Love your postcard build up Sue, lots of clever additions to complement the Summer Holiday theme.. When I first scrolled down I thought the spray bottle was a Wine bottle haa haaa!! Maybe it's the thought of outdoor BBQ's in the UK Summer sun.. Enjoy your weekend.. Hugs Tracey xx
