Sequel Stamp ATCs - Vintage Religious Postage Stamp

The postage stamp I had for this was a religious vintage drawing - so I used vintage paper on the left which I distressed with Tim Holtz inks. Ditto the vintage dictionary page and the stamped image which was collaged on. I then stamped the black swirl. I think I may need to distress the stamp too as it is a bit white - but wonder if that is 'allowed'!

This set of four Artist Trading Cards are for a swap on ATCards Site.

Sequel Stamp ATCs - Zambian Postage Stamp

Randomly dabbed paint on the backing paper.

For the Zambian stamp I have tried to link with the ethnic stamped image which I coloured in.

Sequel Stamp ATCs Tudor Manor Postage Stamp

For this old Tudor Mansion postage stamp I used a similar age rubber stamp.

I started by using a piece of vintage wallpaper on the left, and an torn sheet of vintage dictionary all of which I aged with Tim Holtz distressed inks.

I stamped the vintage like swirls on and added the stamped face on a torn sheet of paper which I had aged too.

It looks darker and 'older in day light.

Sequel Stamp ATCs - Guernsey Postage Stamp

I painted a sea and sky background on white paper for the Guernsey stamp I chose to use.

Then just two stamped images - the seal looks dripping wet in 'real life' as he has been embossed too so is very shin.
