Week 17 Postcard - Norway

This week was not a UIU project.  I used 4 coupons and bought myself 12 alcohol inks.  I have been watching Barb Owen making those beautiful canvas pieces with the inks and I had to have some.  So I drove from store to store to use the coupons.  It is a good thing the stores are only about a mile apart.

Front:
Front of Postcard was made using the inks to create the northern lights which can be seen in Norway.
I had a great time creating the image.  I then paper pieced a skyline at the bottom.  The inks were yet another technique that I had not used before.  I am enjoying trying new things on these postcards.

Back:

postcard reads:
Dear Ann.
It was fantastic spending 2 weeks with your family at the beach.  Your children are wonderful and I am so jealous, you have a husband, 2 fantastic children and a career.  I have a career but still waiting on Mr.
Right.  Marc is a great friend but I don't see anything other than that for us.  Doing a quick shoot in Norway. Was able to catch the gorgeous northern lights while setting up the shoot & wanted to share it.  Love and kisses Zoey.

  2. Fabulous postcard. Aren't alcohol inks fun? We sometimes see the lights from our house in north east Scotland. You have captured them perfectly.
