UKS Postcard Swap - September
I haven't taken part in the UK Stampers postcard swap for a couple of months due to holidays so I was determined to take part this month. I find open themes very difficult especially after having a few months off so this is quite a basic card. I decided to go with this Mucha image after having seen some of his work in Prague this summer. I bought a small diary a few years ago (2010) which has some beautiful Mucha images and decided to take this image which is part of the Monte Carlo - Monaco poster - I just love the expression on her face. I stamped a butterfly BG stamp with Memento London fog onto white card, randomly stuck on some punched flowers and covered the card with some pink tissue paper (courtesy of Monsoon). After sticking on the image I edged the card with decorative tape. The text was cut with TH's vintage market from card covered with washi tape (found in a shop in the same alley as our hotel in Vienna).
