Hats and Crowns Postcard


This is my entry for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge this week to make a postcard with "Hats and Crowns". I love this medieval image from Dover books and overlayed it on a rubberstamped artist paper background. I scanned in into the computer , added postal stamps and digitally colored with artistic filters.

  6. This is a great card. I love your stuff lately- well, always- but lately there seems to be a lot of grey tones. I like that. I haven't done SPA lately...you inspire me to get on that again!!

  16. It would be so much fun wearing hats like the ones you have imagined. Not every day though..I think we would all have very bad headaches. I like the "sketchy" look you achieved on this one with the stamps and background.

  18. I'm glad we don't have to wear hats like that these days .... mine would surely fall off when I was doing a few high kicks with the Hoover, or fall into the soup when cooking. I love the subtle colours Lori. Brilliant.
