Postcard Challenge - Card 2




Text:
"My Natalie,

They wanted me to go and see the bull fighting but I told them no.
I could not go and watch that and then come home and look you in the eye, knowing what I had seen. Not even for research or however they decided to call it.
I went to see Flamengo dancers instead, so I got my bit of culture for this trip.

Yours, M. "

  10. Thank you all for your comments. I have to be honest, I'm fighting the paper a bit. I love the 'kraft paper' look, but at the same time it's a bit difficult to get the colours I want.

    I did this in Stabilo sensor pen and Cotman watercolours. I had tested the Stabilo beforehand, and it did not bleed. Until of course I made the card... *sigh* But hey, just going with the flow.. ;)

    As far as the beaten up look of the card.. welll... that might get explained as we get further into the story...

  14. I am having SO much trouble posting comments to Blogger sites...tried here yesterday and trying again today.
    Just wanted to say your work here is wonderful. Thanks also for the Fountain Pen Revolution site link. I wonder what those prices are in British pounds.
    Oh yes, and thank you for popping round to see my little bloggerty blog site. Next time I'll try to be in and have tea and cake ready.
