Travel Postcard Card by Mandy C

What I used:

Distress Inks ~ whichever colours you like
Old book page

  • Stamp the balloon and Octopode Winston onto some thick card. Colour with watercolour pencils. Once dry cut out.
  • Take your old book page and colour using the Distress inks. Dry with a heat tool. Attach to a card.
  • Do some dry brush painting with acrylics to make it more distressed.
  • Stamp the wings from the Tim Holtz Mini Ornates set in Coffee Archival at the top of the card.
  • Arrange the balloon and Winston on the card and adhere.
  • Using black Archival and the postcard stamp, stamp twice.
  • Using contrasting chalk ink, ink through the punchinella at random places on the card.
  • Edge with a dark colour chalk ink.



  1. Love the colour in the balloon against the grungier browns. Fab!

  2. I love that balloon stamp and you have used a great colour combination. xx

  3. Organized content is the best way to display or post an article, thank you for making it easy to digest your post.


  4. The little guy and the balloon look great together. Fab creation.
