Post Card Swap

This was a fun swap. On this swap we are suppose to look at our partners profile and make a postcard with sayings or things they like. I saw my partner liked birds, tea, and altered art. So This is what I came up with. I made the edges look antiqued with brown oil pastels. Hope she likes it.

Oil Pastels

I couldn't stop myself from stopping by the craft store today. I had to get blank post cards for my current swaps I'm in. Then I couldn't resist these oil pastels. So I got home and started sketching a humming bird. Then some poppies and smudged and smoothed it and it actually turned out alright. Hmm maybe a gift for someone!?
