UK Stampers Postcard Swap - Feb

An oriental postcard from me for this month's UK Stampers swap the theme of which is 'Weather'. I have had Non Sequitur's Kimonos & Cranes set for a long time and decided to give this stamp an inking. Things don't always go to plan - I had intended to heat emboss the image but I forgot. Then while painting the image with Twinkling H2Os I realised that I had put the wrong lid on my Poppy Red pot so I ended up with a Hot Cinnamon umbrella instead. I stamped the image first, painted it and then masked it to do the background.
For the background I randomly brushed Impress lemon yellow over the card and then added a fuschia stencil in Brillianve Victorian violet and a Chinese calligraphy stamp in Brilliance starlite black. I grounded the main image and added another stencil in peeled paint DI for the path. I added the raindrops from the same set and a carved chop that I bought many years ago in China. The inscription reads 'smile in the face of adversity and be happy' (or so I was told).


  1. A great image & fits so well with the weather theme for the post card swap. Yu really feel for her as she battles the wind.

  2. The poor lady is battling against the elements and it seems her umbrella will turn inside out very soon lol. A beautiful postcard and love the cinnamon coloured umbrella!!


I read and value all your comments.
