A couple weeks before my vacation, I sent out some postcards to blogging friends, making use of two of my current favorite pastimes--self-carved rubber stamps and Zentangles. At some point, I will share all of the rubber stamps that I've carved, but for now, I'll share the fronts of the postcards, which display a selection:
I used a light color Distress Ink (Antique Linen, I think) to stamp background images, and then used the Fired Brick Distress Ink to bring some of the images into the foreground. I used the same Fired Brick to ink the edges of the cards:
On the back, I created borders around the edges using different Zentangle and Zenspirations designs:
Here are the borders on the other sides:
This turned out to be a great way to practice a lot of different designs!
I am hoping that my friends and readers will find their way back to Drawing Near after my lengthy hiatus! I am glad to be back.
