Purple Postcards

These are three postcards that I made for a swap on KCUK.
Butterflies.
I coloured the background with a Marvy ink pad and stamped butterflies over it using Distress ink and Brilliance , I'm not sure who made the stamps, I also stamped butterflies on to a piece of torn mauve tissue paper and attached it to the card. I stamped the main image, by Crafty Individuals, on to some white card with a Marvy ink pad and attached it to the card with some brads. I embossed the edges with some tropic violet Cosmic Shimmer UTEE
Life's a Beach.
All the images are by Crafty Individuals. The background is coloured with a Marvy ink pad. I stamped the beach huts on to some striped paper, cut them out and attached to the card. I stamped the main image on to some mauve tissue paper and attached to the card. I stamped the seagulls and words directly on to the card. Lastly I embossed the edges with tropic violet Cosmic Shimmer UTEE.
Birds of a Feather.
The background is coloured with a Marvy inkpad. I stamped feathers [Hero Arts] on to the background with Brilliance. The bird flourish is by Elusive Images and I used Distress ink to stamp it with, then I attached a few jewels to the image. I stuck some tissue tape to the left hand edge. I stamped the bird postcard image [Crafty individuals] on to white card with Distress ink and coloured the card with the same ink. The little flying birds and the words were stamped directly onto the card. The last thing I did was to emboss some tropic violet Cosmic Shimmer UTEE onto the tissue tape.
