Postcard swap - Black & White

The lovely Gracie is hosting a Postcard scavanger hunt and I am taking part!
We could buy or make the postcards so Im making the ones I send off only because I need a little push to take out my crafty supplies and play!
The rules are to send one postcard to our swap partner each week for four weeks - happy mail!  Who doesn't love to receive something nice in the mail?

Week one's theme is 'Black & White' and  has been mailed out already!  I gathered some vintage papers as well as some dotty paper scraps, my glue stick and some thick cardstock and created a collage.

I cut my paper into two to create a postcard size (I'll save the other piece for another crafty project).

I then painted a very thin and watery coat of white paint to soften the look and dabbed it dry with some paper napkins.
I kept at it by layering more -  decorative tape, dotty stamp, a vintage girl image, paper lettering and a floral piece of scrap paper which is not black nor white but I thought it was pretty anyway...
I got a little carried away with ink and glue that I accidently smudged her pretty little face! oops!
