It's the turn of the letter K in the Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary Challenge and I have chosen the word "kindness".
Throughout this challenge I am using a postcard size base (6" x 4"). In 2014 this was also my chosen format for the Craft Barn Lyrics and Quotes challenge using a portrait orientation. This time around I decided to challenge myself and make all my entries in landscape. However it can leave me with a lot of space on one side or other of the card but isn't that what a challenge is all about - to find a way round? For my postcard this week I have overcome the space problem with a rather lovely sentiment I found on the web.
I started by sponging Distress Inks onto my card and them adding some background stamping. The feet were then stamped in Archival ink. The little girls, a well used Crafty Individuals image, were stamped onto card and coloured with Copic markers. The sentiment and dictionary definition were computer generated and I finished by edging the postcard with gold pen.
