I made a postcard for Jane whose chosen theme is
I enjoyed creating this postcard.
The little birdy is a gel transfer.
Hope was laughing when I did it because I was a bit clumsy when rubbing off the backing paper and rubbed off his beak. Now a bird gel transfer can do without many things, but he really needs his beak! So I printed off another copy and performed surgery, rebuilding his beak.
It was a tense moment, I can tell you.
This really was micro-surgery.
Anyway, he survived the ordeal and I don't think
the other birds will notice
(although I did hear one mean crow shouting out that he looked a 'right nerdy birdy'. Crows can be so mean).
I made up the haiku poem, as haiku seemed
appropriate for the rather minimalist feel of this card.
The birdy with rebuilt beak went off to Jane
in a Mail Art envelope
(I forgot to photograph it before I sent it so this pic was pinched from Postmans Knock).
I received this wonderful postcard from Jane
(a different Jane!)
with my chosen theme of
"Yee Ha! Ride 'em Cowboy!"
I love that Jane set up this little tableau and
would have loved to be a fly on the wall
when she was doing it.
We all laughed at the words,
'The gang was amazed when Billy the Kid showed up -
they'd been expecting someone taller.......'
and then said a collective, "Ahhhhhhhh!"
when we looked at Billy the Kid.
On the back of the postcard she mentions that
she knew these little cowboys
would come in handy one of these days!
Jane very kindly enclosed this vintage postcard -
I adore the colours and imagery.
Thank you, Jane.
Both of these postcards are fab and
I will certainly treasure them.
My next Postman's Knock theme to make is
'Angels' for Penny.
