ID: VSN July 2010 - Fabric Postcard  - To create
 x 4"h

Created: July 7, 2010
This is my submission for the Vamp Stamp Magazine for the September 2010 issue with the theme of "Fabric Postcard".


I used a thick unprimed canvas, put a layer of Rheotech Gesso on both sides and let dry overnight. Painted the back with Ceramcoat Delta Yellow, then with some Coral in the upper half, blending with some water.

The Front:
Stamped the diagonal pattern (Color Box Molding Mat) with Versafine Black Onyx. Touched up sections with a Sharpie marker. Colored with Prisma colors, & Pitt Artist pens. Added some Squeeze & Roll glue on the dots and sprinkled various colors of Ritz Micro Fine Glitter.

Adhered a strip of textured copper colored ribbon above the abstract design, then a piece of double sided tape and adhered a decorative piece of lace. Sprinkled Warm Highlights micro fine glitter. Put a couple dabs of glue along the edge of the ribbon.

Below the abstract design, I put a stripe of Eberhard Twin Color (Apricot/Gold), then a Gel pen stripe, then a yellow acrylic paint line, another gel pen line and finally some pale blue paint. Let dry


Stamped the music notes & quote (Quietfire Design) with the black.

Added a large metal pronged pink rhinestone.

Adhered a striped ribbon all around the edges using Beacon Fabri-Tac (PS it smells and is flammable so if you have allergies I wouldn't suggest using it).

The Back:
Stamped the word "Postcard" using MSE Girlz Lower alphabet set and various colors of Versafine stamp pads. Created a shadow line with a Sharpie black fine liner pen.

Covered up the metal prong from the rhinestone with the stamp. Wrote in my address and colored the holes of letters with Prisma colors.
