It is a personal challenge to use scraps from previous cards. I still had this printed image from French Kissed Postcards lying around, unsused. I decided to use it with a background made earlier and a frame of a printed pattern I designed myself.
I imagined this to be a card for someone who needs to relax a bit. Leave the daily hassle behind, put your feet in the water and cool down 🙂
The printed orange background was actually made by scanning:
– a wooden disc which my kids had painted and on which I put a finish.
– a background I had made with torn pages from an old Dutch to english dictionary.
Then I digitally repeated the pattern and adjusted the colours, and printed it. It was a little too orange – it looked less orange on the screen. Now who is wrong, the printer or the screen? Probably both a bit ;).
Two lovely vintage cards with FrenchKissed postcards images coming up in the next post. Stay tuned!
