Vintage Adventurer


The new collage set over at DezinaWorld is called Men of the World, and I decided to make a postcard with a few of the pngs included in the set. The quote is by Lloyd Alexander, and these are the challenges I made it for:
Lots to Do - the scenic route
Cards for Men - off on an adventure
Just for Fun Fridays - orange, green and brown
Sunday Postcard - patchwork. Now the maps background is a patchwork of maps, but by the time I finished adding bits and bobs on top of it I wasn't really sure that the patchwork effect was still visible, so I created the border as well :)

Dear Susan,
Thanks so much for stopping by to see my art work and leaving such a sweet compliment! I love your postcard! I use Dezinaworld collage sheets too! I am learning how to solder and make Steampunk jewelry to sale so when I get it posted I wil let you know! I had more Steampunk projects that I was working on but couldn't get them finished in time for the blog hop! Stop back by again and hopefully I will have everything finished!
Love the teal cards you made--beautiful color to work with! will stop back in again to take more time to see everything you have created!
Thanks, Kym
