The heart has its reasons

The heart has its reasons

Today I am sharing a postcard inspired by Postcard Sunday's theme, butterflies. I got tipped by this fun group via Mixed Media Jenn's instagram where she mentioned she was hosting the postcard challenge this week. I have these gorgeous tissues with poppies and butterflies on them which I thought would be great to use for this theme. The base is an ad postcard (4x6) which I coated with gesso, paint (distress paints) and stencils (by the crafter's workshop) and then over layed the tissues with soft matte gel by art basics (prima marketing). The woman and sentiment stamp is from Carabelle Studio's. I have stamped the woman on thin tracing paper with memento black and also adhered with soft matte gel. Colored her in with pro markers and also used the markers to color correct here and there so no white was showing through. Took the polkadot stencil with a light blue distress paint to add more texture. The scrips stamp is from Paper Artsy.

The heart has its reasons

The sentiment stamp was stamped twice and embossed for a better effect. Dabbed some of that light blue paint over it so it stands out more from the card. 

Also entering this card in the following challenges because it fits the theme nicely
