It’s time for some Spring-related postcard art! I got these beautiful stickers of fancy decorated eggs, and I wanted to do something with them.
With all three, I started with cutting down some postcard-sized substrates (4″x6″), and then covering them with a background layer of neutral-colored papers. I played around with bits until it started to come together. I was looking for florals, but also things that had a color that was found in the selected egg.
For this one below, I found this red bird to match the red in the egg. The stamp with maroon coloring also compliments the egg.
For this last one, I wanted to use lots of bunnies! These are stamps from the USPS. They are “additional ounce” stamps, so they are worth 20 cents each. I bought a sheet of them for $4.
