Post Card Challenge from Serendipity Stamps


Hi everyone!! Hope your weekend has been as gorgeous as ours has. I spend yesterday getting some shopping done. One of my favorite places to go is the Farmer's Market, where they have every kind of fruit and vegetables you could ever want. Grown here in Alabama. They also have every kind of plant, bush or flowers. At any rate, my sister and I had a blast. I bought a new hanging fern for my front porch and some impatiens (sp?) for some pots that I am going to plant and place around my front porch. I wish I was, but I am not skilled in gardening...but I have shown you pictures from my sister's beautiful gardens and I hope she will send some more so I can again post here.

The challenge today is from Serendipity, where we are to make a postcard with mostly their stamps. I love Serendipity images, especially the garden variety. This one is called Adirondak Chair # 712QCL and I thought I would just make a very simple post card. I used Momento Brown Ink for the chair, sentiment and dragonflies. I then used my Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol using a blender stump to color just a little of the image. I sponged around the card and done! I really do like how this turned out. Hope you do too!!

Have a great week and make it a safe one too!! Thanks for stopping by!

Morning Velta

You sure sound as if you had a wonderful time shopping. I only wish our weather in the UK is as good as yours.

Your card is gorgeous, I especially like you distressed edges, and agree Serendipity stamps are fabulous, but not so readily available in the UK.

Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my blog.
