It's Postman's Knock time!
This time I was creating a postcard for Gina, whose chosen theme is
'Concealment and Revelation'.
I made a double postcard,
2 for the price of 1,
Whichever you prefer.
On the front is a gel transfer caterpillar
(with a face only a mother could love)
on a blended paper background, smeared with gesso.
The edges are Distress Ink Stained
(Peeled Paint and Weathered Wood).
The front opens up to reveal the transformation -
Ugly Bugly is now a Beautiful Butterfly
(I always have to say this to myself using the German accent used by the caterpillar in Bugs Life!).
She, again, is a gel transfer.
The sentiment, printed on vintage paper, reads
'One day, one day very soon
she would reveal her inner beauty concealed within.'
I received my latest postcard this morning,
this time from
My chosen theme, if you remember, is
'Yee Ha! Ride 'em Cowboy'
and I really love her interpretation.

Thank you, Chrissie.
ps As many bloggers know, grrrrrr, there's a problem with Blogger and, as I write,
it doesn't appear to be possible to leave a comment on this post.
Hopefully the situation will be sorted soon.
