Postage Due Swap

Right before my trip to England, I was in a swap so I thought I'd share what I made. I used Postage Due. There's quite a lot going on with this card, not my usual style, but I like how it turned out!

The main image was inked up in Crumb Cake and then I took markers and 'thumped' some colour onto the images. The postage stamps used the coordinating postage punch which looks really great! I enjoyed putting this one together.

ETA : Barbara left a comment on 'thumping'. Here's a link to the technique. Hope that helps, Barbara!

Hi Emma,
I saw your Box Arm card and was so inspired by it that I made it. I have acknowledged you on my blog. Thanks for your tutorials and wonderful inspiration. I will let you know when i make more of your creations.

What a beautiful usage of colors. You mentioned that you 'thumped' on some color....what exactly is that and how do you do it?

Beautiful! I could never come up with something like this.

Nice to see your stamping creativity return (although I'm confident it never really left).

How did you attach those dangling tags at the bottom under the bow? Twine?

Great card... Love to get swaps back, it's like Christmas!
