Faux postage

The challenge this week on Rainbow Lady's challenge, well last Thursday acrually, is Faux postage. I actually created this yesterday but forgot to post until just now! Yikes!!! Anyway, here it is
My base is a piece of grungeboard painted with black acrylic paint dabber, then covered with TH paper leaving a small border all round. Then I had loads of fun making all the mini postcards and stamps, using a wide variety of stamps. Sorry, I didn't make a note of all the stamps I used, but you get the idea. Most have been coloured with distress stains and coloured pencils. I then punched two holes in the top and added ribbon to hang. I searched high and low for metal chain I know I have somewhere but had to give up in the end. I bet it will turn up today!

I am entering my wall hanging into the Try It On Tuesday Challenge which is to alter something.


Bye for now. Thanks for looking.
