Ok, no stamping, no cutting, no fancy paper .... to the rescue came the wonderful pool of images from Karen, the Graphics Fairy ... unfailing every time I am desperate for some specific images ...
Looking for some removal type graphics I found an old photo showing a wonderful old-fashioned truck
As time was in short supply we settled for creating a postcard with the truck and some sort of modification in the front and a postcard image from Antiques Images I used beforehand for the back .... I just made it in time with the design (lol) ..... The printing was another step. We found some slightly rough, really nicely textured paper for printing the postcards.
Once I had started to play with the truck I thought it would be nice to try a few things and also to get some more practise with GIMP... this is what I did, please feel free to use any of the images
