I started by punching the holes to lace the ribbon through. They had to be positioned to one side as that's as far as my hole punch would reach. Although my lace background stamp is quite large I had to stamp the image twice and I then embossed with clear powder. I was left with a join line between the images not helped by the fact that I had managed to turn the stamp around before the second stamping. In order to cover the line I stamped the corset image three times onto card that had been sprayed with Dylusions and then black embossed the image. They covered the flaw perfectly. The eyelets were put in place and the ribbon threaded. My dictionary definition was computer generated and as my chosen word can be a noun or a verb I have gone with the noun definition otherwise there wouldn't have been any room on my postcard for anything else! I finished the postcard by running a gold pen around the edge.
I have broken one of my own challenge rules with this make - that the postcard could be sent as it is. However, the ribbon may cause havoc in the Royal Mail machinery, so if I did feel the need to post it, it will have to go in an envelope.
