This is my first time ever joining in on the Make it Mondays challenge with Papertrey Ink. The challenge this week is to create your own stamped postcard. It was such a fabulous idea, so I printed up a couple photos and got to it.
This photo is an all time favorite of mine. It was taken a couple summers ago on a boat ride tour of the Thimble Islands in southern Connecticut. The idea of having your own "island" with nothing but a porch on stilts just seems dreamy to me!
This sentiment fits perfectly, doesn't it? Very simple living, I'd say!
I stamped a simple address label on the back. Nothin' fancy. The photo was adhered to a layer of Neenah white cardstock to give it more weight.
This card was a somewhat failed attempt. Since I used such a crappy quality photo paper, the stamp actually peeled off the top layer of paper as I was removing it. I had done a lot of test stamps, but this one just wasn't gonna go my way! So the sentiment got stamped on cardstock and adhered to the photo. (The photo above is a Meeko paw print in a sandy beach in Maine.)
- Low quality glossy photo paper (crap)
- Neenah solar white cardstock (not crap)
- Papertrey Ink stamps "Winter Hills" and "Sew Simple Borders Mini"
- Memento ink "Tuxedo Black"
