Mixed Media Postcard and GIVEAWAY

Hey guys sorry if this sounding a little rushed. I am really pushed for time, but I have to try and get this post up before my youtube video finishes loading.....eeeek!!  Talk about pressure....  Not to mention as I write this it is getting later and later and much for Sunday night in front of the tv, crocheting flowers!!!

Ok this better make that more this afternoon!! I have worked on creating 7 postcards.  I started my prototype on Friday night whilst Faith and I were on OOVOO cyber-scrapping.  Let me see ....  I am so flustered at the moment I am not sure where to begin!!! arrrrrrrrrrrrrggggghhhhh

Soooooooooooo Firstly I printed some vintage images onto fabric.... homemade printable calico (if you want to know how leave a comment and I will do a tutorial for it.).  Secondly I printed an image onto tissue this technique!! Again if you would like to know how I did this leave me a comment and I will do a tutorial for it too.....  I guess I will let the pics I managed to take - when I remembered - do more of the talking for me now....with some added captions.....

My bases for the postcards were the chipboard backs of some of my paper pads....Perfect thickness!!
Chipboard bases 

Kaisercraft "Pretty Pink" acrylic paint

One thin coat dry brushed on

Gesso and mod podge added

Tissue Paper Print layered on top

Kaisercraft "Postmarks" Stamp set

Stamped layer

Tim Holtz "Black Soot" Distress Ink

Inked edges

Gathering lace, flowers and other embellies 

This is where I got into the "zone" and was totally immersed in creating and once again forgot to take pics for you guys.....I am so sorry!!

Finished Postcard!! youtube video is up!!  You can come watch me make this on my channel

I have two of these left over so I am having a little giveaway.  If you would like to receive one of these all you have to do is, leave a comment here and on my youtube a follower/subscriber in both places.  Two names will be chosen from on Sunday 2nd June Australian Eastern Standard Time.    Winners will be announced here and on youtube. 

Last, but not least, I also created a few art tiles - aka inchies - for a swap at Artistic Creationz.  I have made 4 sets of these.  I have used really thick chipboard....pinched it from the back of my sons art journal (shhhhhhhh don't tell him). Stamped the images with black stazon and coated them in a nice thick coat of glossy accents!!

Sorry for sounding so rushed....hope you enjoy my vid....please leave a comment..let me know what you think.
