M is for Mail

Hello, friends! Today I am excited to share this card with you, as it is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I rather like it, nonetheless. I used a fun postcard image from the Stamp-It Australia Dreamer collection by Crafter's Companion. Have you heard the big news? Spectrum Noir now has Blendable Colored Pencils! Yup! They come in beautiful collections, stored in tins. They blend beautifully and are easy to work with. I've found that they are excellent quality and don't have the breaking and crumbling lead issues that some other blendable colored pencils have. I used them to add the color to this postcard!

Shabby Thank You

I added shading around the edges to make the postcard look aged. I also, of course, added some color to the bee. I really love how beautifully these pencils lay down color. A bit of tulle and a fun wood button from Melissa Francis finish off the card in a fun, shabby chic way. I used a sticker from SRM Stickers for the sentiment, as it was a perfect fit!

Postcard Thank You

I am also linking this up to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. The challenge is the letter 'M' and M is for MAIL! A postcard is most definitely happy MAIL!

Have a Happy!
