Sugar Nellie Postcard

I bought some watercolour postcards a long time ago when I started to watercolour, and I've had a go at decorating one as an actual postcard rather than just using the front to practice on!

I've used a cute Sugar Nellie image called 'best day ever', and also a magazine freebie 'vintage postcard' stamp in the corner to make the postcard look more 'used'.

I've painted my image with DI reinkers and some watercoloured some Sakura Stardust gels to give it some shimmer.  The sentiment was traced directly onto the postcard and painted with a fine brush and DI reinkers.

See my cards available to buy on eBay


Card Recipe:
  • Image - Best Day Ever from Sugar Nellie
  • Jennifer Ellory 'from Paris with love' vintage stamps (magazine freebie)
  • Watercolour Postcards
  • Typed Sentiment
  • DI reinkers & Sakura Stardust Gels
I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting
