Tag It On #12 - Carte Postale

I love the title of this weeks challenge...Carte Postale...over on the Tag It On Challenge blog! It sounds much more sophisticated that a humble postcard hahahahaha

We could make our postcards any theme we wanted as long as it looked like a postcard...lucky for me that I had some lovely postcardy type stamps!!!! I decided to go for an Indian type theme. The card is actually a lot deeper in colour...imagine saffron & you have it!!! For the background I used a mix of distress inks and then overstamped with a map of india & surrounding areas in green ink.

The little elephant was also stamped in green and gold ink & glitter added, tho it doesn't show up too well :(

I used a real postage stamp from Nepal....another lucky find from FIL, bless him X

Oh and I just had to add some of the gold beaded ribbon....I have LOADS of that!!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to have a looksee, Take care.....HUGS XXX

This is lovely Karen I love that stamp and the elephant works so well with it. This theme has me a bit stumped this week, but you've done it brilliantly.
