Postcard swap on UK Stampers

I am rather enjoying the post card swaps on UK Stampers forum - they can be quite addictive.

This month the challenge is 'Blue and Birds'

I found some old stamps that hadn't seen daylight so decided to give them a go

These are cling on stamps and I found that the lines were a bit too thick for my liking
But I painted the images, and tries to blur the lines a bit with Gesso, and I painted in blossome and flower heads that were not on the stamp to soften the effect.

I might have another go at this theme if I get time - but for now I am experimenting with mail art for another swap - this time on Cardmaking Paradise
