Lori's Altered Post Card Swap

Post Card Before

Post Card After
This is the altered post card I created for Lori's swap. It's the first time I've tried anything like this before and it was a challenge for sure! My scan doesn't quite do it justice, as I have 5 layers of embossing powders creating a lustrous textured border around the card. If I could do it again, I wouldn't have gone so far into the card with the powder, but it was a learning experience. It brings the sunset in around my milk maid and the charming passerby.


  1. See? I knew you'd come up with something awesome for your postcard! It's amazing and I love it! Love the quote, too :) xxoo

  2. Thanks for the encouragement! I'm glad you like how it turned out!

  3. Wow! It is awesome! I love the layers you put on it. Gives it so much depth, and I love the saying as well. May I borrow the saying for my journal? You rose to the challenge and did fantastic!
